Update from the boss
-Royston Drenthe and Danny Williams trained on the pitch after Saturday's game, and will work on their match fitness after eight weeks out.
-Wayne Bridge will be out for a number of weeks following a knee operation.
-Danny Guthrie came off with a groin problem at the weekend.
-Adam Le Fondre had a slight hamstring problem last week but was OK for the bench.
-Mikele Leigertwood is back in the early part of training.
-Jem Karacan and Jason Roberts remain long term injury victims and are working with our physios at Hogwood.
Speaking on Bridge's injury, the boss said, "It's a big blow. He's a talented, talented player. He's been really good, we were really excited to get him in the summer, we've been managing him for the past few weeks but he'll be out for a few more weeks now, we just needed to tidy things up a bit.
"I want all the players to show on the training ground their desire to support their teammates, their desire to work hard, keep improving, and from everything they do on the training pitch to show they're ready to play a major part in getting us promoted."
"Alfie'd been carrying a little niggle on his hamstring last week but for me he was still good enough to go on the bench. We've got goals in the team. It was touch and go for Alfie, I could have put Nick Blackman in but I put both Alfie and Billy if required.
"It looks like Danny [Guthrie] picked up a groin injury on Saturday, we've got the international break now, several players will go away, we'll keep working hard and will keep building fitness and momentum. We've lost players who we'd like to have but we'll work hard and it gives opportunities to others."
