In Paul Simpson´s injury update he has given on nufcTV theres some good news – but of course at the moment everybody is shocked that we have lost Tim Krul for the season.
That´s not just a blow because Tim is a good goalkeeper, but he´s also one of the few leaders we have in the dressing room and on the field and he will be a big miss.
Kevin Mbabu – could even be fit for Sunday
But with some other players there´s good news with Daryl Janmaat and Jack Colback both expected to be fit for the game against Norwich and one or two other first team players very close to making the game on Sunday.
This is some of what Paul said on nufcTV starting with the medical department:
“It´s been a horrible time for them in there – they´ll be sick of the sight of some of the faces in there but we are hopeful that after this International break we should have more players back fit again.”
“Obviously as some come out of the room and others go in – in Tim´s case- but we are confident Daryl will come through the week and be available for Sunday.”
“Jack Colback has started to build up his training and we are hoping he will be available for the game against Norwich.”
“Paul Dummett and Sadio Haidara are both starting to build up their training and there´s a possibility that they may be involved.”
“Further back down the line are the likes of Rolando Aarons and we are hoping he can join in training next week.”
“Gabby Obertan is still a few weeks away Karl Darlow is still a few weeks away.”
“Kevin Mbabu – we are keeping our fingers crossed that he may have a chance at the weekend, but it’s possibly going to be one week too early, but we will assess that as we go along.”
“We are asking the medical department to be working overtime, but they are pulling out all the stops to try to get tha lads out.”
“And credit to them that we are actually even able to consider the likes of Paul Dummett, Sadio Haidara and Jack Colback for this weekend.”
“They will keep working this week and hopefully they can keep performing their magic and get them out for us.”
That´s good news on Kevin Mbabu who seems to be close to full fitness and that Rolando Aarons will start training next week – we´ll need those players to get us out of the difficulties we are in at the moment.
