No New Injuries Ahead of Huddersfield Trip
Monday, 7th Apr 2014 10:47

Boss Mick McCarthy has no new injury concerns ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Huddersfield Town. Striker Paul Taylor will be back in the travelling party having missed the visit to Blackburn at the weekend, due to illness.

“Everybody’s fit, there were a couple of bumps and bruises from Saturday but nothing that’s going to keep them out, they’re all ready to go,” he said.

The Town boss says Taylor is now OK having been unwell: “He’s had diarrhoea and sickness for three days. He was ill over the weekend, he reported on Friday morning that he was poorly. He trained yesterday and he’ll be travelling today.”

The cryotherapy unit, which aids players’ recovery, was again at Playford Road this morning and McCarthy says his squad is in decent shape as they go into the season’s last lap.

“They’re all fine. They’re an exceptionally fit bunch of guys, to be fair,” he added.

“I think that’s proved by such a small squad having played most of the games. The back four has played most of the games. We’ve had a pretty settled side. They’re young and fit, they look after themselves and they’re in good shape, I reckon.”

Meanwhile, Town’s U21s are in action against Swansea at Playford Road this afternoon (KO 2pm).

The club will make an announcement regarding next season’s new kit supplier later today with Mitre's contract having come to an end. The new strips themselves will be announced next week with Town now changing both their home and away kits each summer.

He needs the points so the line up that finished against Derby Is the best option...............but he won't do that! He will play it safe & wont be that positive unless we go a goal behind...............having said that, he didn't do it against Blackburn as it would have meant dropping Skuse , so the chances of seeing that line up again rest on Skuse getting injured.
Strange how everyone except for Mick noticed how well Nouble played on the right & Wordsworth played in the middle.

Interesting Taylor back in the squad!...he missed Blackburn due to illness!? - I wonder what it was this time, migraine? gastroenteritis? or is this what the club spins us.

Adidas please!

TimmyH added 12:14 - Apr 7
diarrhoea...he does seem to pick up ailments, I wonder why he wasn't in the squad in previous games?

The biggest news on here for me would be the new kit sponsor. Really hope it's Adidas or Nike. Well done to Mitre though, after a few years of poor kit choices, they saved the best for last as I love our kit this season. Hope Wordsworth plays in the middle with Skuse, just don't think Skuse/Hyam works for us.

Is it true that Mitre opted out of being the kit sponsor because they were concerned there may be an unmentioned increase in the cost which was to be ploughed into the academy?

McCarthy's old squit or Taylor's attack of the squits take your pick.

Cornish contingent making the journey up to the john smiths stadium...only 700 mile round mick we trust but all of us very keen to see Mr Taylor play....asking Paul the reasons after the Brighton game and to his credit remained loyal and tight lipped.....wish MM would come out and give us reasons why a flair player like him isnt getting the run others have enjoyed.....also no games means no renewed contract and another million quid thrown away if he leaves on a free. Nothing to loose with this game so would be great to see an all out attack....a point would be ...pointless (!!) and the game against bournemouth becomes ever more interesting COYB

What has Taylor done to warrant taking someones place ive seen nothing home or away apart from a head down selfish non passer who plays not for the team but for himself ,hardly a jonny williams is he

Sindre94 added 22:47 - Apr 7
Could someone go straight up to Mick and ask him: "What is your problem with Paul Taylor????"

lilcornishblue added 09:41 - Apr 8 miss the point...Taylor is our player while sadly Jonny williams isnt.....I love have jonny in the side and he absolutely deserves his place.....doesn't do anything for our own players though....if we owned JW completely different conversation....and from what you have seen taylor do??....7 starts and 11 sub....hardly a basis for a good run in the team to see what he can disrespect but had Paul been given the opportunity same as Frank think you might have a different view......but whatever the view 3 points tonight and we'll all be happy COYB
