Courtney Baker Richardson has missed the League Two game in England after dropping an Xbox on his leg and injuring his hip muscles.
Crew Alexandra is expected to take a week to recover from a minor fracture, but the unusual injury has ruled out any possibility of being the top scorer.
Crew Alexandra manager Alex Morris explained that the injury came after Baker Richardson had previously injured his leg.
“It’s an area of his body that he’s had problems with before. There’s nothing we can do, but he’s getting treatment.
“He did it in a harmless way, which is pretty much right for those of us with injuries at this point. He played on the Xbox. He dropped his foot on the couch and tweaked it.” Morris added.
Baker Richardson has been an integral part of the League Two side, scoring six goals in 11 appearances.
