NIGEL Clough says that Ben Turner, David Templeton and Kyle McFadzean are doubts for Saturday’s fixture against Wycombe Wanderers, but goalkeeper Bradley Collins could return to the bench.
Turner was on the bench for last night’s defeat to Southend United, while Templeton and McFadzean both picked up knocks during the game.
Turner will have his fitness assessed in a Central League Cup reserve fixture against Walsall this afternoon, while Templeton and McFadzean are doubts for the game at Adams Park at the weekend.
He said: “We will see how Ben goes this week. We have a reserve game this afternoon so a few of the squad players will play in that. We will see how Ben is.
“David Templeton took a whack on his arm (against Southend), he was holding that when he came in last night, and Kyle took a whack late-on, so they will be the major doubts.”
“There is still a little bit (of illness around), Devante has got a bit of flu and Liam Boyce was off with it on Monday. So there is still a bit of it around and we are trying to contain it the best that we can."
Clough has also provided an update on how goalkeepers Bradley Collins and Stephen Bywater are progressing in their returns from injury.
“Brad Collins is now back from Chelsea and started training this week. So, the plan is for him to have a good week of training. He won’t play in the reserve game, Harry Campbell will play in that. If he (Collins) comes through training then he will be on the bench on Saturday and play at Port Vale next week in the Checkatrade Trophy and build up his fitness.
“Stephen is on the grass doing some diving and some cautious stuff at the moment. He hasn’t felt anything so far, so he will be just be building up in the next week or two as well.”
