Skipper to miss Wycombe

15 November 2017

Head Coach Harry Kewell has confirmed that skipper Jimmy Smith will miss Saturday’s game against Wycombe at Adams Park.

Jimmy came off after an hour of Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Forest Green Rovers because of a hamstring injury.

HK said: “Unfortunately Jimmy won’t make Saturday. We’re hoping he will be back in contention next week.

“It’s a shame for him and us but that’s why you have a squad. Someone else will get an opportunity now and the chance to impress.

“It’s a squad game. I thought the three subs last Saturday made an impact and gave me plenty to think about ahead of Wycombe.”

Reds will also have to name a new captain with Smith out.

“I’ll give that decision plenty of thought,” added HK. “There are some really strong candidates in the group.”
