Saints Have Two Injury Doubts For Manchester City Game
Friday, 11th May 2018 17:00
Mark Hughes has confirmed that he has only two injury doubts ahead of the visit of Premier League Champions Manchester City on Sunday.
Saints fans are sweating on the game against Manchester City and praying their won't be a freak set of results on Sunday, manager Mark Hughes though is sweating only on the fitness of two of his squad.
Mario Lemina missed the game at Swansea due to a hamstring injury and Jan Bednarek was forced off with a head injury sustained in a clash with his won keeper on Tuesday and both will be assessed ahead of the game.
"Mario we're still hopeful of getting back," Hughes explained. "But it's touch and go. It was a hamstring issue so you're never quite sure how quickly those resolve themselves. We'll have to wait on that one.
"Jan might miss out. Clearly, he had a bang to his head. He'll need checking nearer the time. Apart from that we'll have a clean bill of health."
Bednarek has an additional reason for wanting to play and end the season on a high, he has been included in the provisional Poland squad for this summers World Cup, after coming into the Saints team because of injury he has put in a series of solid displays for the side and would obviously love to continue that run on Sunday.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
