Nigel Clough: Happy to wait for Will Hughes

Hughes came off the bench to play five minutes against Peterborough on Saturday after missing more than two months with a groin problem.

The teenager's injury was more serious than first thought and Clough has hinted he may now wait until next season before fully re-introducing Hughes to first-team football.

Clough said: "It was more serious than a groin strain, it was a stress injury. You cannot put a time on such an injury so we must still be careful with him.

"We are still not sure if he is going to feature much more before the end of the season.

"The main thing is that he goes into the summer fit, works over the summer and comes back fit for pre-season training."

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
