Paul Sturrock says players will be given every chance
Paul Sturrock has said he is hopeful key players will be available for Blues’ trip to Chesterfield following injury.
Blues’ boss says Kevan Hurst, Britt Assombalonga, Ryan Cresswell and Marc Laird will be given every opportunity ahead of Saturday’s game.
He said: “Britt has had a reaction to the injury when he trained last week and we’re waiting to hear from Watford.
“If he’s not fit, he won’t be risked but we’d like to get him back playing as soon as we can.
“Ryan, Kevan and Marc will be given right up until kick-off. They are key players and the game will be much tougher without them.
“It’s still early in the week so hopefully by the time Saturday comes around they will be ready to go.
“Having that little break has certainly helped because they are big players for us.”
