Doubts Over Young and Younger

Doubts Over Young and Younger

Luke and Ashley are both doubtful for Sunday's game against the Mighty Barcodes.

After hearing that Luke Young would continue to play through the pain barrier for the final two games, he was a noticeable ommission from our last match and we've heard nothing since.

The official site today says that he is desperately trying to shake off a foot injury in time for the season finale, but whether or not it is a new injury or the same one he's been receiving injections for is anyone's guess.

To be honest he's been carrying the knock for a good few months of the season, I'd let him sit it out and make sure he's recovered for next season.

With 5th place unlikely, but 6th place guaranteed maybe a punt on Lichaj, can't be worse than having midfielders and wingers filling in at right back can it.

Ash however has shown slight improvement after receiving a calf injury in our last match, but it's not yet known if he will recover in time.

Wouldn't blame you guys for not risking either of them, but surely you can't just concede 5th. You're only down by a point and there's a fairly good chance that we (Fulham) will at least get a draw against Everton at Craven Cottage. With Carew, Barry, Gabby and Petrov, I still think you can take Newcastle.
