As we gear up to the Wigan clash after a bit of snow brought the country to a standstill again, it seems Monny will have to rejig the team a little.
The Official Site is carrying a couple of quotes from the gaffer that implies Milner will be ready to go, but after a training ground hiccup Luke Young is a possible absentee.
Milner seems to have shaken off his foot injury and has been involved in the indoor training sessions of late. What ever happened to training in the snow, was theraputic that was. Coming off with blue legs, barely able to walk, shaking and shivering yourself to the dressing rooms.
However Luke Young has 'gone over' on his ankle and removed from training although Monny did point out it was precautionary only.
'We've been training indoors which is not ideal for us really. James trained which is good.'
'I'm hoping that it was more precautionary than anything else but we'll see how he is.'
Monny also added that Milly would've been fit for Blackburn had the dreaded white stuff not poured from the clouds, but is pleased in some respects that he's had an extra few days to recover.
Manager Tim Sherwood has spoken of his disappointment - and shouldered the blame - for today's one nil loss to Stoke City.
