The Suns are confident Tom Lynch and Steven May both escaped serious injuries at training

GOLD Coast has dodged disaster on Monday morning, after key position leaders Steven May and Tom Lynch both limped off Metricon Stadium.

May was first to leave the training track with a "slight concussion" after copping a heavy knock in a marking contest during a match simulation session.

Just 10 minutes later, fellow leader Lynch (corked ankle) followed him.

Lynch won Gold Coast's best and fairest award last year.

Neither injury is considered serious, with coach Rodney Eade expecting both to be available for Thursday's main session.

May, 24, was recently added to the club's leadership group. He will skip his weights session on Monday afternoon and be assessed through the week.

The Suns have had a good run with injuries during the pre-season, with Jarrod Grant (broken wrist) the only major casualty.

David Swallow (knee) and Jaeger O'Meara (knee) are both expected to contest match simulation drills in the coming weeks and take part in the NAB Challenge.
