WITH Myles Anderson leaving Hartlepool United for Aldershot on loan, boss Dave Challinor is expecting to allow another player to leave today.

The centre-half has only played a matter of minutes this season and moved south this week on loan until January, with the deal likely to be extended if all parties are happy.

And Challinor, speaking at his press conference this morning, is lining up another player out of the door.

“Hopefully, we get another one our today which will allow him to get minutes for us,’’ he said. “It’s about being able to look at them in a game environment, make decisions, get match fit and come back.

“Myles has moved on loan and he needs games. We are heavy in terms of the squad and have players not getting into the squad. Myles has played 34 minutes all season and been out injured.

“He’s had a concession and what we can’t do is carry players without a reserve game or games programme. We need players to get out and get minutes. This is a busy period, a lot of games in a short space of time, it will get him match fit and get him minutes and there will be more in that category.’’

Peter Kioso was stretchered off in the midweek win at Chestefield after a clash of heads and will be missing for Sunday’s FA Cup tie at Aldershot.

But the diagnosis on Wednesday wasn’t as bad as feared and Challinor said: “I hope he will be back for the next league game. Was he knocked out? No we don’t think so and if he’s not unconscious then he doesn’t have to sit out for two weeks. There’s a protocol to go through and once he’s symptom free in cross training, bike and run and there’s no reaction then he should be OK to go.

“It’s disappointing he misses out on Sunday, but I suppose the bigger picture is he’s back sooner than later.

“Sunday is a big one, but we quickly move on to Woking and hopefully he’s OK for that.’’
