TOWN midfielder Ben Gladwin has sustained torn ankle ligaments after a hard tackle in last night's defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion.

Having come on for Massimo Luongo in 76th minute Gladwin was forced off just before full-time after a heavy challenge from Adam Chicksen left him prostrate on the touchline.

Initially Gladwin tried to continue but was withdrawn when it became apparent the injury was serious.

Today the former Marlow man tweeted a picture of his foot in a protective boot and revealed that he had sustained torn ankle ligaments.

So how long will he be out? Ref didn't even give a foul for the tackle. Wish you a speedy recovery Ben.

Syd, if the ref had dished out some punishment to Branco for his lunge, the tackle on Gladwin might not have happened. It's not often that I have a go at refs but last night's was lenient to the point of recklessness. Amid all the good football, there was a lot of cynical stuff going on - much of it from our players.

I've just seen Nathan's fore arm smash into the neck of the Brighton player that saw him sent off.
How any one can possibly defend his action is beyond me, he was nowhere near being in a position to challenge for the ball. Forget all this " heart on his sleeve, totally committed, heat of the moment, taking one for the team, stuff, this was poor judgment, lack of thinking (by then he must've known we were walking wounded) and leaves us struggling to put out a full side against Coventry.
What's happened to his pledge to get carded less? Precious little signs of that happening to date. My bet is he'll be our first player to sit out three games under the totting up procedure.

Clearly it was a crude attempt, almost as poor as the attempted pass back to Foderingham which led to the chase. His first yellow though was the one for the team.

The tackle on Gladwin was both nasty and uneccessary I thought but as Den says if the ref had dealt with the Branco incident better maybe that wouldn't have happened.

Defence still a work in progress, but Nathan's a bit like Rooney - take out the commitment he's half the player and it was his no nonsense approach that won over the fans in the first place. Some of his blocks and fair tackles get no mentions at all, people just latch onto the rash ones. But your points are fully valid.
