|Scowy Very Doubtful Fri 10th Mar 2000 13:41 |
Town's man of the season so far, James Scowcroft is rated as very doubtful for tomorrow's game at Wolves. The other man missing from Tuesday's 0-0 draw with Blackburn, John McGreal stands a good chance of being fit, although George Burley may stick with Manu Thetis who had an impressive time against the Ewood Park side. Thetis and Fabian Wilnis were singled out for special praise by George Burley and both will be looking for starts at Molineux. Pressuring Wilnis will be Gary Croft who has now recovered from his gashed knee. Also nearing the first team is Mark Venus who came through the reserve game in the week, but is not considered fit enough to start tomorrow. Other centre-half injury problem Titus Bramble has also resumed training, although he is a long way from being fit for first team consideration. George Burley has told Marcus Stewart to be more selfish and to drop deep less. After two goals in his first two games Stewart has failed to find the net in his next three. Probable squad: R Wright, Branagan, Wilnis, Clegg, Clapham, Croft, Stockwell, Mowbray, Brown
