Club captain won't feature tomorrow but could play some part in final four.
Club captain Matt Tootle has successfully come through two Under-21 fixtures in three days but it is unlikely that he will be risked for this weekend’s crunch home game against Leyton Orient. The experienced Tootle has not played a first team fixture since October after suffering an ankle injury and then a recurrence in his rehab.
Steve Davis say he will sit down with his skipper and see if is ready to play a part in what will be the final four games of the season following this weekend’s visit of the O’s. Tootle, who was last season’s Player-of-the-Year, is determined to play some part in the closing month of the season after having his appearance record limited to just 18 games.
Steve told the club’s official web-site: “Matt has played two games for the Under-21s in 3 days, so he will be stiff today. He won’t be involved tomorrow.
“I will speak to him to see how he feels about being involved at some stage in the last four games. It would be a gamble because he has been out for five months and has only trained for two weeks and played two games.
“He won’t be perfect by any stretch but he is an experienced player and he can use that to get through some of the games. He is our captain and a big player for us and we have missed him.”
