One or two niggles

19 December 2015

Paul Lambert will give late checks to a couple of players ahead of Sunday's league match with Reading.

There were a few bumps and bruises after the games against Rotherham United and Nottingham Forest, but the manager is confident that they'll have cleared up in time for the match at the Madejski Stadium.

"There's one or two little niggles at the minute which you'd expect with the amount of games that we've played," said the Rovers boss.

"So we'll have to wait and see but we hope they settle down before Sunday."

One player who is available for selection after recovering from a tight hamstring is Doneil Henry, but he isn't expected to immediately force his way into a Rovers side that has kept a clean sheet in their last three outings.

Whilst Tom Lawrence, who was an unused substitute on Monday, has shaken off a calf knock. 

"Doneil has done okay, but the form of the other lads means there are people ahead of him at the minute but he knows that himself," added Lambert.

"But that is why you need a squad because you just never know what is going to happen through the next through weeks.

"Tom hurt his calf the previous week so with a physical game following the Rotherham one that was physical as well, we thought Nottingham Forest would be the same.

"That is why we played Fode up there to help Jordan as two games in three days was a big ask."
