Nicky Bailey’s run of luck with injuries continues as the midfielder has now developed a small calf tear just days after returning to training having recovered from a right calf muscle injury.

Having picked up the injury initially in the final pre season friendly of the summer against RCD Mallorca, he has been restricted so far this season to only one start and substitute appearance.

Physio Bobby Bacic explained to the official site about our overall injury situation.

‘The last international break of the calender year gave us time to iron out a few niggles before the matches return regularly again. We modified the training for a number of players including Ricardo Fuller, who had a minor problem with his knee, and Richard Chaplow who had his wisdom teeth removed.’

Bacic goes on to say that both of those two players were back in full training yesterday and Chaplow came in on his day off to make up for some lost time.

‘The players who did not train included both Scotts (Malone and McDonald) who have minor muscle problems and Nicky Bailey who had resumed training at the end of the week but developed a small tear in his other calf. Nicky is having wretched luck at present and although we do not predict this injury to keep him away from training for long, he will need to play in the U21s before he can be considered for first team selection.’

Our only long term injury is therefore Carlos Edwards, but Bacic explains he is now up and about and happily walking without his crutches and brace so he’s doing as well as can be expected at this stage in his recovery.
