Ryan determined to be fit for Saturday

Defender confident he'll be ready to face Chesterfield on Saturday

Defender Ryan Cresswell is hopeful he will be able to play on Saturday away at Chesterfield despite picking up an injury in last Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat to Brentford.

It was feared Ryan had broken a bone in his shoulder in the FA Cup replay at Griffin Park, but scans have revealed he has only suffered muscular damage.
Now, the defender who has scored eight times this season says he is ready to face Chesterfield. He said: “I’ve told the manager I’ll just strap up my shoulder and will be fine to play at the weekend.

“I haven’t trained with it yet or taken a whack on it so we will have to see how it responds to that.

“However the way things are at the moment I feel confident of being able to play.

“And that’s good news because to begin with I was fearing it was broken and I would be out for four to six weeks – or even longer.”

The defender would certainly have missed Saturday’s game against Plymouth, so admits he wasn’t too disappointed to see the game postponed. 

He added: “I know some of the lads were disappointed the match was postponed because they wanted to play, but for me personally it was probably a blessing in disguise.

“I’m not sure I would have been able to play in the game, and there were a few others who would have been doubtful too.

“Hopefully I’ll be able to play in the game when it’s rescheduled and we can get a good result.”
