Alex McLeish has given a mini injury update on Stiliyan Petrov and Alan Hutton.
Speaking to the Official Site McLeish said that Petrov would return to full training on Thursday ahead of the Blackburn game, after working individually with Adrian Lamb our fitness coach.
'Stiliyan is training again, he trained with our fitness coach and joined the group for the warm up. He will be back training as normal on Thursday and that's a clear sign he'll be available for Saturday.'
As for Alan Hutton he has returned from Scotland duty after picking up a hamstring issue.
'Alan's got something wrong right at the top of the hamstring, a bit of pain. We will assess him first thing in the morning. We hope Alan's okay because I don't want to keep changing the side every week. It's important we get a bit of consistency.'
Maybe we'd have been a little bit more consistent if we had changed the side when players weren't performing Alex?
Just an idea like.
Eck does add that should Hutton not make it, he has faith in Chris (Herd) and Eric (Lichaj) to step into the position and perform.
