A sub itself, after a 2-0 win over Elliott Rovers and a 2-0 win over Dipdale, they could have won 3-0.
However, the 17-year-old last walked just 20 minutes before his teammate John Buckley.
The Lancashire Telegraph reported that Elliott’s pass helped create the third goal, which was rocked by Tyris, but he was treated shortly after Ryan Ledson’s tough competition.

“The initial news is we hope it’s just a kick.
“It came up very quickly, an injury, but it doesn’t seem to have been badly damaged.
“When you think of a knee injury, you think of a ligament, but it doesn’t seem like it.
“Just a great serious kick and we hope that’s enough.
“People like Harvey Elliott can’t play every three days.
“Unavailable to our first eight team players, we need to bring them back as soon as possible.
