Accrington Stanley head coach John Coleman has told the club website that Max Stryjek will return to the club after an injury lay-off next week.

The 21-year-old goalkeeper was a big signing for Accrington when he moved on loan from Sunderland on transfer deadline. However he would suffer from a terrible bout of luck as just nine minutes into his debut, the Lancashire derby against Morecambe, he would suffer a hamstring injury that forced him to go off.

This injury forced Stryjek to return to Sunderland for treatment, leaving Aaron Chapman as the only senior goalkeeper at the Wham Stadium. But in what is great news for the club, Stryjek will return to the team next week and could then be considered for team selection. This isn’t the only positive injury news that Accrington have got as Coleman also revealed that Kayden Jackson has got over the most of his hip injury and could play some part in Saturday’s match against Coventry City.

Coleman said: “Max will be back in training with us next week,”

“Kayden trained yesterday and we’ll keep monitoring him, he’s being struggling to shake this one off but we’re hoping that he will play some part on Saturday.

“You just want everybody that you’ve got here to be available and at your disposal. When you can’t it can be frustrating but apart from Max we should have a fully-fit squad to choose from on Saturday.”

“Ben’s [Richards-Everton] recovery has gone well, he played 90 minutes in the Checkatrade Trophy and that’s another option that we now have.”
