On 12 January, Director of Football Neil Balme provided an update on the injury status of the following players.

Brent Macaffer and Matthew Scharenberg
"Brent and Matthew have had ACL reconstructions. Most of the rehab is having the patience to get through it. Both are progressing and training well. We can't put a time on when they will play but certainly we expect both to have an impact this year."

Darcy Moore
"Darcy has a sore big toe and given that he is a first-year player, we have put him in a moon boot for three weeks. The doctors had a look at it today and it is settling very well."

Scott Pendlebury
"Pendlebury is training very well. Scotty he is coming off some surgery on his shoulder. He is actually fine, he just isn't doing full contact training."

Ben Reid
"Ben is on his way back now after receiving treatment in Germany for the last week. All the reports are that we are expecting a pretty good outcome from the trip. We won't be able to tell until he comes back. We always thought it was a relatively minor injury in itself and that he had a few other soft tissue injuries that we thought we might have look to see if there were any systemic problems. He should be flying when he comes back."

Paul Seedsman
"The club is satisfied Paul's hip is in good shape after he underwent exploratory surgery on Friday because he was experiencing minor soreness in the joint. The minor procedure was a precautionary measure to ensure the 23-year-old defender's soreness was not due to any structural issue," -, Sunday 25 January 2015.

Dane Swan
"Dane is training very well.  He had a fair bit of surgery in the off season. We are working him in a position of fitness so that he can play when the season commences. He is training every day and working very hard. We are very pleased where he is at the minute."

Alan Toovey
"Alan had a slight strain to his calf over Christmas. He was running today so we are pretty happy that he will recover quickly."

Jesse White
"Jesse rolled his ankle at training today and had an MRI.  He received a medium grade sprain and will likely miss the next three weeks of regular training."
