Defender to feature in Under-21 cup to prove fitness
Harry Davis will feature for the club’s Under-21s in Wednesday night’s Under-21 cup-tie against Burnley. The Premier League Cup competition will allow Davis to get valuable minutes on the pitch after he suffered medial ligament damage against Gillingham last month.
The centre-back is back ahead of schedule and has been able to train after just four weeks after it was first feared that he could be out for 6-8 weeks. If Davis performs well against the Clarets on Wednesday night, then he could be in contention for the visit of Bradford City on Saturday.
Manager Steve Davis told the club’s official web-site: “Harry will play tomorrow against Burnley. He has trained well and looked fine and he needs a game.
“It will do him good to get minutes on the pitch and we’ll how he does because he is bound to be a bit rusty after missing the last four weeks. He has recovered really well and we’ll see how his sharpness is.
“Before he suffered his injury, Harry was playing well. His form had been good and along with Matt Tootle he was one of our most consistent players. He was excellent at Oldham and claimed a couple of man-of-the-match performances when the performances of the team were not so good.”
Steve Davis also revealed that forwards Max Clayton and Chuks Aneke will also feature for the club’s reserves.
