Five Sit Out Training

Alongside Town's Skipper, Darren Bent, Martijn Reuser, Fabian Wilnis and Matt Richards were all missing from training this morning as Saturday's game started to take it's toll on the blues stars.

Reuser and Magilton both are suffering with a back strain, something Royle feels will be cleared up in time for Tuesday: "Both players have a back strain and sat out training but we are hopeful they will return on Tuesday," he told the Official Club Website.

Meanwhile Fabian Wilnis and Matt Richards are suffering with a hamstring problem: "Fabian Wilnis and Matt Richards also missed the session with minor hamstring problems but nothing serious. Fabian is out of the Crewe game on Saturday anyway because of suspension."

Darren Bent is still suffering with the ankle injury that kept him out against Reading, and is unlikely to return to training until Thursday at the earliest.
