Thursday 4th January.
Not only has Peter Ndlovu been recalled by Birmingham City, they
are trying to get clearance for him to play in their FA Cup tie
against Manchester City, but because he is technically still on
loan with Town the FA need to give their approval for him to turn
out for Birmingham. It is starting to look increasingly unlikely
that he will make a return to Town and this would be a crying shame,
particularly when he seemed to be left out in the cold at Birmingham
until we gave him the chance to show.
Long-term absentee, Clyde Wijnhard, is back at Town today and will
be seeing a specialist about his badly broken right arm. I hope
that he is well on the way to recovery because we could do with
him back soon especially if Ndlovu isnít going to return. I know
he sometimes couldnít hit a barn door from 2 feet, but we need someone
up front to hold the ball up and put opposition defenders under
the kind of pressure Ndlovu did. Get well soon Clyde, I didnít really
mean some of the unkind things I said about you earlier this season.
