Ryan Wilson insists he should be fine for AFC Telford United’s clash with York City on Saturday following his recovery from a concussion.

The 24-year-old left-back missed wins against Tamworth and Droylsden after sustaining the head injury in the 2-1 defeat to Alfreton Town on November 18.

He has been monitored closely by Bucks physio Jake Roe in that time, and said: “I’m fit and I’m ready to go.

“Hopefully, with everything going well in training this week, I will be involved against York.

“I was looking to be involved this past weekend, to be fair, at Spennymoor Town, before it got called off.

“It being called off was a bit of a blessing though, really, as it gives me a week to get back to full fitness.

“I had a few good sessions with the rest of the lads last week, but some more should get me back to being match-fit.”

Wilson suffered the concussion during the first half of the loss to Alfreton at the New Bucks Head.

He felt fine to carry on and finish the game, but experienced the symptoms on the evening and for the following couple of days.


“It happened in the first half against Alfreton,” said Wilson.

“Their keeper booted it up to the left and me and their winger collided in mid-air.

“I think he went off at half-time but I felt fine at the time.

“It was just more of the evening and then the Sunday and Monday when I felt a bit disorientated.


“After a few days, really, I was feeling better but I was not allowed to do anything for a week or so.”

Telford will be looking to make it three wins in a row when York come to town at the weekend.

Wilson – the club’s fist choice left-back who has made seven appearances since signing from Matlock Town – says him and his teammates are eager to put on a show for the Bucks faithful, especially after a free weekend to rest up.

“I’m hoping to be back for the weekend and all the lads will be up for it, after not having a game this past weekend,” he added.

“Another three points against York would be excellent, to keep our decent run of form going.”
