Town ran out 3-0 winners on Tuesday night against Newcastle United's U21 side.

It was a strong Town side that took to the pitch with goals from Fejiri Okenabirhie, Jason Cummings and Dave Edwards sealing the win.

A few players were missing from the squad, and after the game Town manager Sam Ricketts cleared up the reasons why starting with Romaine Vincelot.

"Romaine has got a knock and is injured and unable to take part at the moment", said Sam.

Striker Steve Morison hasn't been involved in the last couple of games and Sam explained this is down to team selection.

"With Steve, it's a case where I can only pick so many players and Steve is fine with what we are trying to do here", said Sam.

"We have several good up and coming players, and if Steve isn't playing on the pitch, he is adding huge value elsewhere.

"Steve and I understand where we are, and we've got young players on an upward journey and Moro has been helping them."

Callum Lang picked up an injury in the 1-0 win against Tranmere Rovers at the weekend in the Sky Bet League One.

Sam revealed that Callum is scheduled to see a specialist to get a clear assessment of the injury.

"We are waiting on Callum seeing a specialist on Wednesday, and then we will have a full extent of the injury", said Sam.

"It's not looking great, but we will find out more after he has seen the specialist.

"You get injuries in football, and unfortunately Callum has picked one up, he gives everything on the pitch and plays with his heart on his sleeve, and the fans have bought into him.

"We've got plenty of other players who can come in if needed and take the opportunity."
