TEAM NEWS: WALSALL (H)

4 February 2021

Mark Molesley rounds up the latest team news ahead of this weekend’s game against Walsall.

Simeon Akinola, Sam Hart and Elvis Bwomono

"With all of them we’ll have to take late calls.

"They’ve been working hard this week with the physio’s and trying to get that right balance of a bit of rest, a bit of physio and a bit of active work as well.

"We’ll see who makes training tomorrow and there will probably be late calls on quite a few players to be honest.

"Hopefully the clear week has helped us, it was much needed and we’ll have to take late calls on some."

Jacob Mellis

"He’s come in and trained right away. He hasn’t had as much first team football recently as he would like but that’s what has paved the way for him to come to our football club.

"He’s been training and we’ll have to build his fitness up quickly but what it does do is it gives us strength in depth and he doesn’t have to come in and play 90 minutes straight away. We’ve got other good quality midfielders around.

"He adds competition for places but he also shares the load."

Brandon Goodship

"Brandon has been back training which is good.

"He’ll be a late call but if he’s training then he can obviously be available.

"He’s probably not going to be able to start the game and we’ll have to build his match fitness up."

Terrell Egbri

"T’s had a minor setback but he’s back out on the grass again. The longer he’s out the longer it takes for them to come back.

"We have to be careful with him and he’ll have to do some more rehab work before he can join team training."

Alan McCormack

"The same with Macca, he’s doing a lot of good work off the pitch at the moment and he’s yet to join in team training."

John White

"His was quite a bad blow to the foot which left him not being able to feel his foot.

"Luckily that was more nerve damage which after 48 hours rest. He’s been able to do more on it today.

"We’re very hopeful he’ll be back involved at the weekend."

James Olayinka

"James is making good progress. He’s back at Arsenal and I spoke to him a couple of days ago and he’s a touch ahead of schedule, probably around three weeks away from returning to play."
