Sun Postal Sports' suffer a blow as top scorer James Armstrong ruled out for up to two months due to injury
3:27pm Wednesday 16th October 2013 in Sport
Sun Postal Sports' Spartan South Midlands Division One title hopes suffered a potentially fatal blow last night when James Armstrong was ruled out for as long as two months.
Armstrong, who has scored 13 goals in 11 league games this season, hobbled off after 20 minutes of the 3-2 win over Kentish Town with suspected medial ligament damage to his right knee.
The injury is to the same knee he damaged while playing Sunday football for St Josephs more than six years ago, one that kept him out for six months and denied him a trial at Charlton.
The 32-year-old builder, who scored 37 league goals last season, will certainly miss the Herts Senior Centenary Trophy clash against Kings Langley, his old club, on November 9 and the fear is he could be out until Christmas.
Armstrong's goals have helped fire Paul Hobbs' team to second in the table and the goalscoring burden will now fall on Craig Lynskey, who has netted seven league goals, and new signing Tyrone Young who got off the mark on Tuesday night.
Nathan Pooley took his league tally to nine for the season with two on Tuesday night as Sun came from one nil down to beat Kentish Town for the second time this season.
Sun travel to Langford on Saturday before hosting Chipperfield in the St Mary's Cup on Tuesday night.
