Boss: 'No malice from Hunty'

Adkins on winger's challenge

After our defeat at Ipswich, manager Nigel Adkins was quick to defend former Royal Stephen Hunt for a challenge on Alex McCarthy.

Hunt was booked after catching our goalkeeper on the line, and Nigel was very relaxed about his attempt to win the ball.

He said, "Being an ex-goalkeeper myself, the ball is there, you expect a challenge.

"I don't think there was anything malicious in it, was there?

"Yes he's caught him late, I think he caught him in the stomach but I don't think there's malice in it.

"I haven't got any issue with it at all."

Hunt was substituted to a good ovation from the home fans, and came across to applaud our supporters at full time.

Meanwhile, the boss said midfielder Danny Guthrie is likely to miss out when we host Blackpool on Tuesday night, but is hoping he may be in contention for the trip to Millwall next weekend.
