Injury update

Dermot Drummy with update ahead of Saturday's game against Grimsby

There is good news on the injury front ahead of Saturday's home game against Grimsby Town in Sky Bet EFL 2.

Mark Connolly, who came off with concussion during last Saturday's match at Mansfield, returned to training today.

Likewise, Alex Davey trained today after suffering a shoulder injury against the Stags which forced him to come off during the second half.

Fellow defender Joe McNerney is back in light training and a return for him is "about ten days away", according to the boss.

In addition, Adi Yussuf returns to the squad after he was unable to play against his parent club last Saturday as part of his loan agreement.

Dermot said: "Apart from Joe everyone is in contention for Saturday which is obviously good news.

"It was disappointing that Tuesday's game at Yeovil was called off but in hindsight it might have been a blessing in disguise. 

"We wouldn't have had Mark Connolly and playing three games in a week, one of which had extra time, would have been tough on some of the others.

"So we're raring to go for Saturday. We know we have made mistakes which have cost us goals in recent games and this week the emphasis has been on eradicating them.

"We are aware of Grimsby's strengths but we're a good side as well. We have to extenuate our positives and make sure we cause Grimsby problems as well."
