Reds replace injured Kyle May with Paul Johnson
Last updated at 15:31, Friday, 15 February 2013
Workington Reds have brought former loan star Paul Johnson back at the club, after Kyle May was ruled out for three weeks with a leg injury.
The battle-hardened defender was unable to train with team-mates this week because of a horrific eye injury picked up in the defeat to Oxford City last weekend.
Training alone, it is believed May went over on his ankle while running, and has been sidelined by the injury.
Boss Darren Edmondson moved quickly to bring the impressive centre half back to Borough Park.
Johnson starred in a red shirt last season while on loan.
Workington have also signed Sunderland goalkeeper Joel Dixon, after Newcastle’s Jonathan Mitchell was called away on a European trip with the Premier League club’s academy.
Workington host play-off chasing Altrincham tomorrow (3pm ko).
Lee Sinnott’s side have the league’s top scorer Damian Reeves, who has netted 25 times this season.
