Uncertainty Over Crainey Fitness

Uncertainty Over Crainey Fitness

Ian Holloway is uncertain whether Stephen Crainey will be fit or not for next Monday's game against rivals Preston.

The left back was taken off injured at half time on Saturday and replaced by Joe Martin.

Today the Scot will undergo tests on his foot to diagnose the problem.

Ollie isn't totally sure what state Crainey is in.

'It was an enforced change because Stephen went into a tackle and as a result has a very sore foot. He was unable to carry on,' said the manager.

'I haven't got a clue if he's a doubt for the Preston game.

'There is another week until that match and normally, when it's only a blow on the foot, you are fine and you can normally run it off.'


In other news, Premiership referee Kevin Friend will be the man in black for the derby on Monday.
