ARNOLD, LOPATA & PHILLIPS UDPATES

16 December 2021

Steve Arnold will miss Saturday's game against Dorking Wanderers as he adheres to the concussion protocol.

Blues’ number one was substituted last weekend midway through the second-half against Notts County.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United loanee Kacper Lopata will find out more from his knee scan after meeting a consultant this afternoon. Midfielder Harry Phillips has returned to training.

Here’s the latest team news update from Kevin Maher…

Arnold

"He’s had to go through a protocol this week and he’s doing a lot better, but he won’t be ready for the weekend.

"That gives someone else a chance and we’ve got Harry Seaden and Collin [Andeng Ndi] ready to go.

"We’re guided by the medical department on Steve but hopefully after the weekend he’ll be good to come back.

"Harry Seaden had an ankle issue going back 10 days which he is coming back from and will come into the fray now."

Lopata

"Kacper was meeting the consultant today so we will have more news later this afternoon.

"I spoke to him the other day and he’s in good spirits.

"He’s hopeful that he will get good news off the back of that.

"Even last weekend he would’ve pushed on and tried to play through the injury but it wouldn’t have been the right thing to do.

"He just wants to play football all the time, he’s not one to duck out over knocks and stuff like that.

"Fingers crossed that comes back positive news today and he will be ready sooner rather than later."

Phillips

"He’s trained today for the first time so hopefully he will be available for the weekend."
