Boss praise for Ness and Stoke staff as he fights to be fit for the weekend.
On-loan midfielder Jamie Ness is doing everything in his power to be fit for this weekend’s fixture at Coventry City. Ness has missed the last two games after being forced off at the half-time interval against his former club Leyton Orient with a calf strain.
Ness has returned to his parent club Stoke City for treatment on the injury and it has been positive news coming from the medical department of our near neighbours.
Ness began jogging again earlier in the week and it is hoped that he will fit enough to resume full training on Thursday.
Ahead of this weekend’s crucial trip to Coventry, Steve Davis told us: “We have had some bad luck recently when it has come to injuries, losing Tatey and then Chris (Atkinson) on Saturday.
“Nessy has a chance. He has had some injections at Stoke and he has started jogging again. We are hoping that he will be able to train with us fully on Thursday and then declare himself available for selection.
“If we could have Jamie available then that would give us a huge boost. We have missed him and he was here on Saturday supporting the lads. That goes to show the mentality of him.
He added: “He could have returned to Stoke with a few games left and thought that will do me, but both he and the staff at Stoke have been brilliant. He has worked exceptionally hard to give himself a chance and that is what you want from a player. He isn’t technically one of ours but he is determined to get back and help us. That shows the character he has.“
