But Bass could miss his side's opening league game of the campaign at Chelmsford City on Saturday, August 4.

Owens told devonlive.com: '˜Alex has had a scan back at Portsmouth and it has shown up a little tear.

'˜It's not a bad injury but he's touch and go for the start of the season.

'˜If he misses the first week, that could mean he misses three games.'
