Key duo touch-and-go

Bradley Dack and Charlie Mulgrew could play a part for Tuesday night's home clash against Frank Lampard's Derby

8 April 2019

Tony Mowbray says the key pair of Bradley Dack and Charlie Mulgrew could both be available to start against Derby County on Tuesday night.

Dack picked up a knock in training in the back end of last week, which kept him out of the squad against Stoke City on Saturday afternoon.

Skipper Mulgrew limped off with an ankle injury in the clash against the Potters, and Mowbray admits he has a decision to make on whether the Scotland international will play against Frank Lampard's Rams.

“Both Charlie and Bradley are touch-and-go," the boss revealed to iFollow Rovers ahead of the clash against the Rams.

"There seems to be people talking about Bradley, but he came off clutching his hamstring on Thursday and was checked out by the physios.

“There’s no tear, but there may have been a minor strain or just a tightness. I didn’t want to take a chance with him on Saturday, because he could be forced off through injury after his first sprint and be out for six weeks.

“I’ve seen there have been things on social media and people have put two and two together, but I’d like to think our supporters believe I’m pretty honest.

“There’s no conspiracy theories though, Bradley didn’t play because he was upset or anything like that. If he was fit then he would have play.

"If he is fit for Tuesday night then he’ll play. Why? Because he’s one of our better players.

“Charlie is less likely to play as he has an ankle injury. We might strap it up and send him out there, or we may make a decision on whether it’s Derrick or Jack who comes in for him.

“We’ll make that call after training today."
