Rocks fear Dodd may miss rest of season

Bognor’s top scorer Terry Dodd may miss the remainder of the season after suffering a suspected broken toe.

Dodd picked up the injury in the 3-1 victory at Canvey Island and is expected to be ruled out for up to five weeks.

That would mean the striker would miss the final 11 games of the regular season but could feature if the Rocks make it to the play-offs.

The absence of the former Worthing frontman – who has 20 goals to his name in the Ryman Premier Division this season – is the latest injury setback for the in-form Rocks after star winger Ben Johnson’s season was also brought to a premature end.

Bognor boss Jamie Howell said: “Terry has scored 33 goals for us in all competitions this season so it is a massive blow.

“I would like to bring in another striker with him out but at this stage of the season it is difficult to find quality players who are available.

“It’s frustrating as we have got ourselves in a really good position only for injuries to jeopardise what we have worked so hard for.”
