Craig doubtful for Forest clash

Tony Mowbray also has an update on skipper Charlie Mulgrew ahead of this weekend's outing

11 April 2019

Tony Mowbray has revealed that Craig Conway is a doubt ahead of the weekend clash against Nottingham Forest at The City Ground.

The Scot produced an excellent display in the midweek victory against Derby County at Ewood Park, but the boss has confessed that the 33-year-old is touch-and-go for our trip to the East Midlands.

“Craig’s the only one who’s a doubt really," Mowbray said to iFollow Rovers.
 
“He has a slight thigh strain, which is a real shame as he was so positive the other night against Ashley Cole.
 
“He was directly against him, even though I was tempted to play [Adam] Armstrong against Cole, with him being 38.
 
“Craig, as I have said many times, is such a fantastic trainer and such a fantastic personality.
 
“He asked questions of Derby and was mature in his play both in and out of possession, helping out Elliott [Bennett] down that right side.
 
“He’s the only one who’s a doubt. We’ll see over the next day or so whether he trains and make a decision on him.
 
And whilst Conway's availability remains up in the air, the same can be said for his countryman in Charlie Mulgrew, who missed the midweek home encounter.
 
“Charlie trained today," he added. "What we’ll have to see is whether there is a reaction in training or not.
 
“If there’s a reaction then he won’t travel, but otherwise there’s a chance he will travel.
 
“We’ll wait and see with him."
