Grandison struggling for Saturday

17 April 2013

Jermaine and Wrighty set to miss Colchester game

Graham Turner says he does not expect Jermaine Grandison to be available for Saturday's trip to Colchester while he also revealed it's looking unlikely Mark Wright will play again this season.   
Grandison returned for last weekend's match against Bournemouth, his first start since January 19 after a hip injury, but he's now suffered a relapse. 
"I think the likelihood of him playing for us on Saturday are fairly slim," said GT. "I think he feels he's had a relapse again and he's struggling.
"All we can do is go on the information that the physio gives us about him and the information from the player himself. He's either fit to play the game or isn't fit to play.
"Jermaine had joined in training for quite a number of days prior to playing. He had also played in the reserve game at Tranmere last Wednesday so his preparations were right for Saturday.
"It's unfortunate that he's still feeling it in the rigours of a game."
As for Wright, the manager added he was running out of time to play a part for Town in their final three games of the season after suffering a hip injury.  
"Mark's doing some light training," he said. "He's doing the warm ups with the other players at the moment but he's not continuing into the full sessions.
"I've got to say I think it looks unlikely that he will figure before the end of the season.
"We have a reserve game next Monday at Walsall and whether he'll be fit enough to be included in that remains to be seen."
