CONCORD Rangers are still waiting to discover when Jack Cawley will be able to return to action.

The central defender, who made the move to the Aspect Arena from Isthmian North outfit Maldon & Tiptree during the summer, has been frustrated by a spell on the sidelines.

While Cawley is nearing a return to full fitness, Beach Boys boss Danny Scopes feels tomorrow's National League South meeting with fourth-placed Havant & Waterlooville will come too soon.

"We are waiting on a second opinion regarding Jack's injury," said Scopes.

"It's a case of us not wanting to take any risks and we want to make sure he recovers properly before returning.

"We have to be patient and do things the right way.

"It's frustrating because we think Jack is fit enough and he wants to play.

"We want him to play as well, but we can't put him on the pitch until we know he has fully recovered.

"He is a great lad and it will be great to see him return."

Concord, who are 12th in the standings ahead of tomorrow's Havant clash at the Aspect Arena, will be on a high after making history in midweek.

The Beach Boys overcame Bath City in a replay to reach the third round of the FA Trophy for the first time.
