Injury Update

8 March 2014

Latest on Pogrebnyak & Williams

Nigel Adkins revealed that both Danny Williams and Pavel Pogrebnyak missed Saturday's clash with Brighton through injury.

Both will now be assessed ahead of Tuesday evening's trip to Leeds United. 

"Pavel got an ankle injury which was reported on Monday, which he picked up against Yeovil," said Adkins.

"It's not a twist, it's not a kick - he's just rocked his ankle. We'll have to see how quickly we can get him back. Danny Williams didn't get back until Friday from international duty and has a swollen knee. Hopefully we'll get that settled down but it wasn't enough for today."

In total the manager made four changes for the game with the Seagulls - with international appearance taking a toll on the squad, meaning Kaspars Gorkss and Garath McCleary dropped to the bench. Jobi McAnuff also started as substitute as he returned from concussion.

"We got 15 or 20 minutes out of Garath but but he was running on empty towards the end. Kaspars was away in Macedonia in midweek so young Michael Hector came in and did brilliantly. We'll take care of business with our recovery strategies in the dressing room, train again in the morning, take stock, put the game plan together then train again on Monday morning and travel to Leeds for what we all know will be a very challenging game at Elland Road."
