Buxton suffer fresh injury blow after leading scorer Diego De Girolamo breaks his arm in freak accident
Buxton are on the hunt for a new striker after leading goalscorer Diego De Girolamo was ruled out with a broken arm.
De Girolamo suffered the injury during a freak accident after he slipped whilst getting out of his car and is expected to be out long-term.
Boss Steve Cunningham says he is now hopeful he can bring in one or two new fresh faces ahead of the weekend.
“It is a blow for us and a blow for him,” he said. “He has had a freak accident so it is a bit of a nightmare.
“We need to bring in some players, we are so down to the bare bones it is unbelievable.
