Forest Green Rovers striker Reece Styche has been told he does not require surgery on his knee injury.

The 22-year-old was forced off the field during their 1-0 win over Tamworth on 20 September.

The forward, who has scored six goals this season, is likely to be sidelined for a further month.

"The consultant says there is no major panic and he just needs to rest," Rovers manager Dave Hockaday told the club website.external-link
