ALDERSHOT midfielder James Rowe could be out for the remainder of the season after suffering a bizarre injury involving a bottle of Ribena.

The 27-year-old dropped a bottle of the fruity drink on the floor, before stepping on the shattered glass, resulting in a long-term setback.

He has now been ruled out for the foreseeable future after Shots assistant manager spoke of the accident at his home.

Also named James Rowe, he told Surrey Live: “James is a long-term one and he’s nowhere near coming back at the moment.

“It was a freak accident at home unfortunately, I believe. It’s going to be months rather than weeks he’s out for.

“It’s hopefully not going to be [the rest of the season] but it is a serious one.”

Rowe had been in good form for the National League side, netting once in nine league games.

The ex-Tranmere ace has become the latest Aldershot player to join the injury list, with Gary Maddock’s side also without attackers Matt McClure and Jacob Berkeley-Agyepong.

Striker Dan Holman recently had his contract at the Recreation Ground terminated, leaving Scott Rendell as the only available forward.

Aldershot currently sit 13th in the table, and face a home clash against Bradford on Saturday with a place in the second round of the FA Cup up for grabs.
