Bowyer Set to Miss Return to Leeds Thursday, 19th Jan 2012 13:13
Veteran midfielder Lee Bowyer looks certain to miss Town's trip to his old club Leeds on Saturday with his groin injury. Better news for manager Paul Jewell is that Grant Leadbitter (hip), Damien Delaney (foot) and Jason Scotland (hamstring) are all back in training
Jewell said: “Lee Bowyer trained on Monday but felt a reaction at the end of training, so he’s had an injection in his groin, which will probably rule him out for the weekend.
“Grant’s trained this morning, as have Damien Delaney and Jason Scotland as well. So except for Lee Bowyer, we’ve basically got a full squad.”
i agree with old clacton, if leadboots is in the starting 11 then jewel defo has lost the plot, as our midfield has no bite to it at all when he is playing, and i thought smith had a reasonable game on sat, he scored a goal, and put in a good shift, the last goal wasnt total down to himselve which we conceded, but jewel defo needs to get edwards to stick close buy there left winger as to often he comes in field or is to far upfield, with no one covering.
Rossm..being one of our better players this season isn't difficult. Haven't seen Bowyer hunting down the ref, arguing or being the petulant hot headed player we all knew and loved and Leeds, Newcastle and Birmingham city. He had passion and desire...now he doesn't, IMO, which is what this forum is all about after all. Are you Woodgate in disguise?
Old clacton, spot on, leave them on the bench, start as last game, Scotty if he is fit is key up front, if not get chops really up for it & give him a chance. The blacpool game showed more desire & comittment in the midfield than has been seen for ages at PR, leadboots needs to sit & watch form the dugout & see what he needs to do as does LB! Long live the youthfull revolution......
Nitro... In my opinion, your opinion is wrong, but heyho. I have seen him celebrate goals this season like he had scored them. and im not sure many people did love him when he was at Leeds or Newcastle....
