Scunthorpe United players suffer whiplash injuries after being involved in road traffic accident
IRON duo Matt Godden and Robbie Gibbons are today continuing to recover from a minor car crash which meant the former of the duo was ruled out of last night’s game with Stevenage.
The vehicle in which they were travelling was a write off, but boss Brian Laws said the pair had escaped serious injury.
“The pleasing thing, and I’m sure all the supporters would concur, is that they’re both okay,” said the United manager, after watching his side earn a 1-0 victory over Boro.
“The car is a write-off – but it could have been much worse.
“They’ve got a bit of whiplash, so it wasn’t going to be good to have involved either of them in today’s game.
“Thankfully there’s no long-term damage and I would expect giving Matty a few days off will be enough to help him recover.”
Godden, 21, has been a regular on the bench for United since returning from a loan spell at Blue Square Premier League side Ebbsfleet in early December.
Gibbons is already not being considered for selection because of long-term illness.
