Pat Baldwin can only sit on the sidelines and look on as he attempts to come back from injury.
After breaking his toe in early October he was hoping to be back in action within 4-6-weeks although he is still a little way off a return.
He was hoping to be in with a chance of making the squad for the FA cup this weekend but will not make it, much to his frustration: 'the toe is still painful. It's not excruciating, but it's still very painful to touch around the toe area.
'It's still painful for me to walk on it, which is so frustrating. We had hoped that it would just settle down with time, but that has not been the case and I am now on crutches.
'I need to keep my weight off the fracture. The protective boot, that I had been wearing, was making the toe flare up a little.
'Perhaps it was too tight? It certainly irritated the toe, so it`s better to be on the crutches. I've been using them for a few days, and I don't really know how long it will be before I am back.'
Baldwin knows that all he can do it keep his 'head down, stay patient, and make sure that he don't lose heart' but insists that he will 'definitely be back.'
With his contract up at the end of the season he will be keen to get as much playing time between now and the end of the season to ensure that he can extend his stay at the club where he has been for almost a decade.
