The centre-half sat out the 2-1 weekend defeat by Rotherham following his exertions for Wales Under-21s in midweek.

"He played 90 minutes on Wednesday night and his hamstrings were tight on Thursday and Friday," said Town boss Richie Barker.

"It was a tough game for him, they were 4-0 down at half-time so he obviously did a lot of defending, and it was a late night with a long journey back so he was a bit tired.

"I felt with the nature of the game and the way they were going to play it might have been a bit much for him."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.
