Craig Bryson: Missed Peterborough clash with hamstring injury

The 25-year-old missed the 3-0 defeat to Peterborough on Saturday after complaining of a tight hamstring in the days leading up to the game.

Clough did not want to risk the midfielder but expects him to be available to play against Blackpool at the weekend.

"We wanted Craig out there on Saturday and he was itching to play as well, but it was one of those occasions where we didn't feel it was right to risk him," Clough told the club's official website.

"He felt a little tight, and given it was a very cold day too we didn't want to push him out there and then see him pull his hamstring.

"If that had been the case he would probably have been ruled out for the whole of November.

"It was a blow for us going into the game and we certainly missed him during the 90 minutes, and we fully expect him to be back in the fold for the Blackpool game."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
