RIDER NEWS: Injury concerns over Sassek

Coventry’s Elite League hopes have suffered a major blow with reports emerging from Poland late on Thursday night that their World junior number two Michal Sassek has broken a leg in a training accident in his hometown of Leszno in Poland.

Team manager Lee Marsh said: “We have been receiving texts from Michal (pictured left with Marsh) and pictures of his leg in plaster although there is a language barrier. If the injury is confirmed, it’s a major blow for us”.

We are still waiting for confirmation on this news, if it is true we wish Michal a speedy recovery.
