Collins injury frustrates Wilson

Hartlepool United boss Danny Wilson is counting the cost of injury to defender Sam Collins during Monday's 2-0 win against Yeovil at Victoria Park.

Collins, 29, hobbled off after falling awkwardly in an aerial challenge and Wilson is keen to ensure he suffers no further damage before returning.

"It has been a big blow for us quite honestly," he told BBC Tees.

Striker Richie Barker also limped off during the game and he is also a doubt for Swansea on Saturday.

"Richie Barker's done his hamstring, if it is as serious as we thought then he won't be about for the end of the season," Wilson said.
