Duo Back In Contention
Neil McDonald is set to receive an injury boost this weekend, as Colin Doyle and John Herron prepare to travel with the squad to Scunthorpe United.
Goalkeeper Doyle has been absent since the opening day with a shoulder injury, while John Herron has now recovered from a pre-season knock.
The pair joined in training as normal this week and now go into contention for Saturday’s starting line-up at Glanford Park.
“They’ll both come into consideration,” said McDonald. “We’ll see how it goes between now and Saturday, but if there’s no reaction they’ve got a good chance of coming into the team.
“We haven’t seen John Herron since he got injured in pre-season. He showed a lot of promise and I was well impressed with what I saw from him. He’s returned to training this week and looked really good.
“Colin feels very comfortable so he comes into the squad as well. It adds to the competition for places and after the results we’ve had it’s a good dilemma for me.”
