Tuesday 20th February.
Delroy Facey who was injured on Saturday right at the end of the
game is doubtful for Saturdayís visit to Turf Moor. I thought he
had just taken a bit of a knock, but it seems that he badly gashed
a knuckle, presumably from a stud. The gash is so deep that the
bone was exposed (ouch!) and although they thought he might be able
to play with the hand strapped, it looks doubtful at this stage.
There is almost a week to go before the game and things might change,
but if they donít then Macari might possibly have to call on Chris
Hay or Danny Schofield. Maybe we could sign Iffy Onoura back on
loan if he can only get a place on the bench for Gillingham.
Results went badly on Saturday, and they continued in the same
vein tonight with Barnsley and QPR both winning, and Grimsby and
Crewe picking up a point at Bolton and West Brom respectively. Only
Stockport lost, 4-0 at Norwich, but we are starting to lose some
ground again on the teams immediately above us. We have games in
hand on most of the teams above us, but itís almost 2 months since
our last victory and we need to start collecting some maximum returns
before we lose too much more ground.
