Huws and Skuse Could Return Against Rotherham
Thursday, 10th Jan 2019 14:45
Town boss Paul Lambert says he will decide tomorrow whether to include Emyr Huws and Cole Skuse in his squad for Saturday’s home game against Rotherham, while keeper Dean Gerken is among a number of players to have shaken off knocks ahead of the Millers’ visit.
“We’ve got a few injuries back, which I hoped would happen,” Lambert said. “Deano’s one of them. We’ve got quite a strong squad for Saturday.”
The Blues boss says no one has picked up a new injury: “Everybody’s good, everybody’s in good spirits, which is really important. We’ll be ready.”
Skuse, who has been out since early December having undergone minor knee surgery, and Huws, whose own knee problem has sidelined him for 13 months, had previously been pencilled in to make their returns on Saturday and Lambert says they could well be involved.
“They’re doing OK,” he said. “They’ve been back training with us for a couple of weeks. We’ll see how they are and I’ll judge it tomorrow.
“Cole’s absence has been a huge blow because I think he was playing really at the top of his game and I thought he was really enjoying his game. But that’s football, that’s what happens.
“Where we fell down was probably [in terms of a replacement for him]. If Cole Skuse was out, who was going to replace him? A like-for-like, we didn’t have that cover. But hopefully he’s going to be OK.”
Tom Adeyemi is still out having undergone achilles surgery, while Grant Ward is out for the season having ruptured his anterior cruciate knee ligament.

The Long and Winding Decline by ElephantintheRoom
The long, slow decline in Town’s fortunes since we became part of the mysterious and opaque ‘Marcus Evans Business Empire’ has been both hugely depressing and acutely embarrassing. But if we’re honest, Town’s decline pre-dates the much-maligned Marcus Evans’s arrival by decades. Both on and off the pitch.

Marcus Evans Needs Our Support Not to Be Hounded Out by FrimleyBlue
I started a thread on the TWTD Forum a few weeks ago about why I felt sorry for our owner. It was an interesting thread, a few agreed but there was a majority who continued the recent craze of ' Evans needs to go'.
