|Holland Hopeful Thu 24th Aug 2000 10:54 |
Town skipper Matt Holland is hopeful that he will be fit to line-up for his 170th consecutive game for the Blues on Saturday. Holland's ankle was injured by a challenge from Gary Neville just before half-time and he was eventually substituted, for only the second time in his Town career, two minutes into the second half. The man signed from Bournemouth said: "It is still puffy and swollen but not as bad as I thought it might be. It is not the best but I'm not going to rule myself out of Saturday." Martijn Reuser and James Scowcroft will be standing by to take his place in midfield should Holland be missing.

|Johnson for England? Tue 24th Aug 1999 14:42 |
Former England and Town man Kevin Beattie has shocked football today by claiming that David Johnson is the man to play alongside Alan Shearer for England. Johnno has gone goal crazy so far this season, notching up five goals in his first four games. The 22-year-old has already made one appearance for the England B team as well as playing in a couple of friendlies for Jamaica and is in the squad for their game with the USA in September. Because he has never played in a competitive international match he is still available for selection for England and indeed, as a British passport holder born outside the British Isles, any of the other home countries. Whether Kevin Keegan will agree with his former England collegue that Johnson is "the nearest thing to Michael Owen -lightning-quick and capable of frightening the life out of defenders." remains to be seen.
|Veno No Show Tue 24th Aug 1999 12:21 |
Mark Venus will miss tonight's Worthington Cup 1st Round 2nd Leg tie with Brentford. The centre-half picked up a thigh problem during Saturday's victory over Bolton Wanderers. Apparently it is just a dead leg and should be OK for Saturday's game with Sheffield United. Other injury worry Richard Wright has recovered sufficiently to take his place between the sticks for his 133rd consecutive appearance. He has also been included in the England U21 squad for the Euro 2000 qualifiers against Luxembourg at home (Sept 3rd), and in Poland four days later. There is also a place for Kieron Dyer.
