McAuley, Lisbie & Walters Doubts for Derby

Last updated : 16 April 2009 By Site Editor

McAuley is currently recovering from a hamstring injury sustained whilst on international Duty for Northern Ireland, Kevin Lisbie sustained a dead leg on Monday against Bristol at Ashton Gate whilst Jon Walters suffered a re-occurance of his ankle problem in the same game.

Speaking to the Official Club Website, Town Physio Matt Byard confirmed: "Jon had a scan on Tuesday and there are indications of bone bruising.

"We've had discussions with a specialist and will see how Jon progresses over the next two days. He has not been ruled out for the derby. It will probably come down to how he feels maybe as late as the morning of the match.

"We will make a late decision on Gareth as well. He's had two good days of light training and we will step that up on Friday. He is scheduled to train fully on Saturday and we will see how he is from there.

"Kevin has been responding to treatment for a dead leg and hopefully he will be back in full training on Saturday."
