FC Edmonton’s walking wounded to be assessed on Wednesday


FC Edmonton will be sweating on the status of several players ahead of next Sunday’s return match against the San Antonio Scorpions.

The Eddies lost a physical affair 2-0 to the Scorpions in Texas on Saturday, and defender Paul Hamilton and midfielder Kenny Caceros left the game at halftime with injuries.

The team confirmed Monday that Hamilton has a bruised hip — and will be re-evaluated on Wednesday. Coach Harry Sinkgraven has given the team Monday and Tuesday off to recover — the Eddies don’t resume training till Wednesday.

Of couse, the Eddies will be hampered if Hamilton needs to miss any games. He is the general of the defence, and is by far the best Eddie when it comes to dealing with balls in the air.

Matt Lam, who soldiered on through Saturday’s match, also has a bruised hip.

Fullback Fabien Vorbe had his nose broken in the first half of the San Antonio match, but ended up playing most of the game.

Defenders Jonathan Joseph-Augustin and Adam West are nursing bad hamstrings, while midfielder Serisay Barthelemy is out until June with a calf injury suffered in the Amway Canadian Championship against the Vancouver Whitecaps. Midfielder/forward Kyle Yamada has yet to play this season due to injury.

The team begins a three-game homestand with Sunday’s match against the Scorpions, the expansion side which has stunned the NASL by opening the season with a 4-2-1 record and stands third in the table.
