Hakeeb Adelakun and Sean McAllister have broken their hand, assistant manager Ned Kelly has revealed, while confirming they are still able to play.Both injuries are minor problems - Adelakun picked his up in the Sheffield United match, while McAllister sustained the problem in training.
“Sean has got a break in his hand and is wearing a plaster cast,” Kelly admitted to The Iron Player at his Tuesday press conference.
“Hakeeb Adelakun has got a similar break in his hand from Saturday.
"They are both little breaks, nothing too much, it won’t keep anybody out.
"They just get a plaster cast and have both trained no problems.”
Marcus Williams returned from injury to play in the Blades draw, and Kelly said: “Marcus was okay, he was a bit stiff on Tuesday morning but he got through it with the group really well and everybody else is okay.”
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Sam Slocombe, who has not played since breaking his arm against Bristol City in January, is also making good progress.
Kelly added: “Sam is coming along okay, he is training again with Joe [Anyon] and Luke [Daniels]. He is only doing slight bits, he is not diving around or getting involved with the vast majority of the sessions, he has just been doing a bit of hand work.
“The gaffer will choose fit and available players as he always does, it’s the same for everybody - people get suspended, injured and have to miss out - whoever comes into the team has to take on board what is required of them to put in good performances.
"We have a good group of players and that’s what hopefully they will do.”
