MARK WRIGHT was forced to MISS Crawley's clash with Stevenage through injury.
The TOWIE star joined the League Two side in December and made his full debut last weekend against Harrogate.
But the 34-year-old endured a disastrous opening 45 minutes and was hooked off at half-time with his side 3-0 behind.
Wright wasn't handed the opportunity to make amends after injury ruled him out of the clash.
Taking to Twitter, he told his fans: "Little update. Since the game last Saturday for Crawley I have been out of training.
"I injured my hip/rib area of my left side from striking the ball.
"I won't be there tonight because of this but hope to be back training Thursday.
"Good luck to the lads tonight."
In Wright's absence, Crawley stumbled to another defeat with Elliot Osborne grabbing Stevenage's winning goal in the 83rd minute.
