Adkins gives injury update

Manager Nigel Adkins gave an injury update following our fantastic 3-1 win at Pride Park - despite having several players unavailable.

As well the sidelined Jason Roberts and Mikele Leigertwood, Nigel Adkins was without Wayne Bridge, Danny Williams, Jem Karacan, Royston Drenthe and Jobi McAnuff on Saturday, but a marvellous team performance secured three points at Derby.

"With Danny (Williams) it's a case of 'welcome to the Championship!' He got a good kick on the foot, same as Royston. It was a competitive game the other night and quick turnaround wasn't sufficient to recover."

Adkins added, "I'm sure Bridgey will be fine for next week."

The manager also gave an update on Jem Karacan, who faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering a very unfortunate knee injury.

"It's a knee injury and we'll make sure we get the right diagnosis then plan of attack. He'll be out for a while but we'll look after him in a big way."
