Team News: Fleetwood (H)

12 September 2019

Gary Waddock has revealed Mark Milligan is touch and go for Saturday's game and John White is likely to miss out.

Milligan returned from international duty early due to a hamstring problem, while White had to come off in Blues' last league game against Rochdale.

Here's what Waddock had to say at Thursday's press conference on the injury concerns going into the game against Fleetwood.

Mark Milligan

We’re monitoring him, he’s back in, he was with Ben this morning out on the training ground so we will see tomorrow going into the weekend whether he’s available or not, but he’s been out on the grass today.

He had a slight hamstring injury after being away in the camp with Australia so we will monitor him over the next 24 hours or so.

John White

It’s settled down, it’s not as bad as we first feared but I think Saturday could be too early for him.

Timothee Dieng

He trained today and he’s trained the last few days or so. He’s back out on the training ground which is pleasing for everybody.

Stephen McLaughlin

He’s been training, he’s looked good on the training ground, so we have to make a decision whether it’s the right time to introduce him back into the matchday group, but he’s done really well on the training ground.

Liam Ridgewell

He’s still out with a slight calf injury but it won’t keep him out too long I don’t believe, so again we're monitoring him on a daily basis.

Nathan Ralph

We've given him more time to recover, he's been out on the training ground the last couple of days and he’s done some work with Ben today. Then we will see if there’s a reaction tomorrow but we need to go into the game with players who are 100 per cent fit and available.
