Football: Jae's bad break for Stratford; SOUTHERN LEAGUE: Striker out for two months after injuring hand NON-LEAGUE ANALYSIS NON-LEAGUE NEWS.
STRATFORD Town have suffered a blow after being told Jae Martin could be out for at least eight weeks with a broken hand.
Former Moor Green player Martin also fractured three fingers, after falling awkwardly while going for a header.
As a result, Martin has since had a plate installed in his hand.
Despite the loss of Martin, Stratford still remain unbeaten after five starts, but manager Micky Moore maintained: "We're making good progress, but it will take 12 games before people can start to judge us.
"At the moment, we're missing some key players."
Apart from Jae Martin, Rory May has been out through illness, Leon Thomas and Loz Rawlings injured, while on loan Mark Turner has been recalled back to Tamworth.
It meant Moore having to play Jerome Grandison this week, even though he was injured.
UNBEATEN... Micky Moore.; OUT OF ACTION... Jae Martin.
