Setback For Sidwell

Setback For Sidwell

Steve Sidwell has suffered a setback in his return to fitness from the calf injury sustained prior to the Reading friendly.

Speaking on the official site Martin O'Neill has revealed that the midfielder is unlikely to be fit in time for our clash against Stoke on Saturday.

'Steve has had a little bit of a set-back - nothing major.

'We hoped he would be training this week but it looks likely to be next Monday now.

'He is feeling stiffness in both calves now.

'His attempts to get back are so strong, maybe he is overdoing it.'

Be hard for a player not to overdo a return from injury now with Curtis Davies setting the bar so high!

A blow indeed. I'm looking forward to seeing this guy in the starting line up. Very good footballer, he'll both inspire and deliver. Very good signing Mart. Two thumbs up!

It wasn't against Reading Gruck. He was injured before the friendly there, he never started the game. Come to think of it, none of them did!

Important to get him fit and available, its not like we have an abundance of players available.

Too true Col8, for all Marts involvement in the transfer market, we are still short on numbers and quality.

I expect a decent goals haul from him when he's fit. He likes to push forward, get on the end of things, surely ten goals isn't too much to expect. I think he'll prove to be a genuine quality signing.
