Albury’s hopes of a mid-season resurgence haven’t been helped with star paceman David Tassell still battling an ankle complaint.

The 25-year old suffered the syndesmosis injury, or high ankle sprain, while fielding against East Albury on November 25.

“I haven’t done anything on my ankle since it happened,” he said.

“I might have a run on it at training Thursday, but, until then, I really won’t know where it’s up to.”

The right-armer is one of the association’s quickest bowlers and the battling Albury has missed his firepower.

He’s taken 12 wickets at 13.7.

Despite boasting only one win from 11 rounds, Albury is still a chance to play finals.

Due to the limited points available in one-dayers, it sits just 12 points out of the top six.

Albury faces eight-placed Belvoir in Saturday’s final one-dayer, with four two-day games rounding out the regular season.
