Yeovil Town boss Steve Thompson has made no decision regarding Tommy Doherty.Yeovil Town boss Steve Thompson says no decision has been made regarding injured on-loan midfielder Tommy Doherty.
The Queens Park Rangers player is awaiting the results of an X-ray on Tuesday after he picked up a leg injury in Saturday's 3-0 win at Chesterfield.
The former Bristol City man was making his Glovers debut at Saltergate, but there are fears he has re-aggravated an old fibula injury following a challenge with Chesterfield's Steve Blatherwick.
"We're waiting on the X-ray results to find out how bad it is," Thompson told skysports.com.
"I would imagine he'll be out for a minimum two weeks.
"If it's the same injury he had before, I'll have to discuss that with QPR."
Fellow midfielder Anthony Barry also injured himself against The Spireites by dislocating his kneecap and is likely to miss the rest of the season.
The loss of Barry and Doherty has prompted Thompson to hand a trial to Portsmouth youngster Marc Wilson.
The teenager will get the chance of a reserve run-out at Swansea City on Wednesday.
"He's done fine," Thompson said.
"We've only had the one training session yesterday afternoon and we're hoping to play him tomorrow in a game and get him signed on loan."
Thompson revealed that Yeovil's search for more players took them to Monday's reserve match between West Bromwich Albion and Bolton Wanderers.
"We felt that getting two injuries to two midfielders for the rest of the season on Saturday, we needed to take a game in so we went to the West Brom v Bolton one," he said.
"There were some players that might interest us, but I've not acted upon that yet by going in for anyone.
"We're hoping to take in another game on Wednesday and maybe make decisions based on that."
The Huish Park chief has also been searching for a striker, but admitted that Wealdstone striker Jermaine Beckford is unlikely to move to the West Country, having denied making a bid of £50,000 for the 22-year-old.
"I have been looking for a striker for three or four weeks, so that's not stopped," Thompson said.
"Jermaine Beckford has interested us, but I think Jermaine has been going to a lot of the London clubs and trying out.
"He was certainly at Crystal Palace and Charlton and I think Watford have made a bid for Jermaine.
"It looks like he's set his sights on a club closer to his home at Harrow."
