Team News: Blackpool (A)

5 February 2020

The latest team news from Wednesday’s press conference with Sol Campbell ahead of Saturday’s trip to Blackpool…

Harry Phillips

"He has a medial ligament [injury] which is going to be about three months max altogether from start to finish.

"That’s a blow for him because he got into the team and was doing really well."

John White

"He’s fractured his arm again, in a different spot.

"He will try to get back for the end of the season. It is what it is, it’s a shame because he has to start all over again but he’s a strong character and he will pull through."

Sam Mantom

"I think [he can be involved this weekend]. We decided not to play him because we didn’t want him to risk his thigh.

"We’re just trying to balance the whole team really, to make sure everyone can play or take part.

"We’re light on numbers but if we can get the players through the next couple of weeks it will be great."

Stephen Humphrys

"He’s fractured his nose so we need to reorganise that but it shouldn’t be too long.

"There’s no trouble around the eye socket so it’s a straight forward one to get sorted.

"I don’t think that’s going to be too long, a couple of weeks max really."

Timothee Dieng

"He trained today. He went through a rigorous training session so he should be good for the weekend.

"Missing a weekend probably did him the world of good as well, just to give him a couple more days rest.

"He got through today, he’s not lost too much fitness-wise and he got through unscathed so hopefully he’ll be pushing for the weekend."
