Trollope hopeful over injured stars

Wayne Brown, Danny Coles, Chris Lines and Jo Kuffour would all have missed out at St James Park, which was called off due to a waterlogged pitch, while Byron Anthony was struggling after picking up an injury in training on Monday.

Trollope, whose side face Colchester on Saturday, told the club's official website: "The soft tissue injuries sustained by Chris Lines and Jo Kuffour are probably taking a wee bit longer to heal than we first thought.

"We had hoped that both would have been back for (the Exeter) game, but they were still experiencing a little bit of soreness over the weekend. We are hoping to get one, or both, back for (Saturday's clash with Colchester).

"Danny Coles is making good progress with his jarred knee and is expected to join in training on Thursday, while Wayne Brown is still continuing his rehab at Fulham but may be involved on Saturday."
