Baudry only returned to the side for Monday's win over Bury after missing three games with a hip problem but lasted just 12 minutes, while his replacement Omozusi limped off in the second half.

With regular centre-half Scott Cuthbert recently ruled out for the season with a metatarsal injury, boss Russell Slade could be left short at the back for the run-in.

"Mat Baudry looks like a recurrence of the hip injury while Elliot Omozusi looked a touch more serious, so we'll have to wait and see on that one," he said.

"It's not ideal but our job remains the same, we need to get as many points as we can."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
