Injury Update: One Up & Three or Four Down
Mick McCarthy today said that Steven Fletcher, Steven Mouyokolo and Jelle VanDamme will not play tonight.
Fletcher tried a test run with his foot injury on Sunday and his injury had not settled down as today. That means that he could be in doubt for Saturday aswell.
And it seems that our Captain – Karl Henry – has got a groin problem. As a precaution he will rest today, but hopefully he can play Saturday.
There is, however, one positive to report. Dave Edwards is up and running and cleared to take part in tonights match.
Let us hope that Fletcher and VanDamme will be O-K to play Saturday. And that the groin problems of Karl Henry will be minor. We need them all to play against Newcastle on Saturday.
(I’ve updated the probable lineup for tonight HERE because of this news)
