JJ MISSING FOR BARROW

7 January 2013

Boss has options for Bluebirds visit

Midfielder JJ O'Donnell will miss the Town's game with Barrow after breaking his nose in Saturday's FA Cup victory over Wolves.

The winger needed a trip to hospital and posted a gory image of himself on Twitter later that evening. His face is still swollen and he won't be risked for the meeting with the Blue Square Bet Premier's bottom club.

Jake Howells missed the cup tie with Wolves with a hamstring injury but is fit to return to the squad, whilst cup-tied Simon Ainge and Scott Neilson also come into the reckoning.

However, manager Paul Buckle explained at his press conference on Monday that it will be tough to change a winning formula that did the business at the weekend to earn the Town a fourth round tie with Premier League Norwich.

The boss also revealed that midfielder Andre Boucaud returned for training with the club on Monday. 

In other news goalkeeper Lewis Kidd has extended his loan spell at Banbury for a further month while Alex Lacey has joined Eastleigh on loan for a month and Jake Woolley has joined Hitchin on a month's loan.

Full story and video to follow later this afternoon and tomorrow.
