For those that bemoan the JPT and it’s silly rules then there would have been a lot of head shaking today after the news that Christian Dailly’s fractured eye-socket will take up to five weeks to repair.
Approaching 37, Dailly is one of, if not the most important player in PP’s still threadbare squad and he has already missed one game this season due to suspension. One has to hope either Jon Fortune is ready to play 90 minutes or Matt Fry will be more comfortable at centre-half than he was at left back in Devon on Saturday. Or then there is always Miguel Llera.
Moving swiftly on, the JPT is a reminder with a huge bloody R that we are where we are. Our next tie away at Franchise FC will be televised, which at least will save even the most loyal Addick a journey plus we might actually make some money from the round.
Akpo Sodje, Lee Martin and Kyel Reid all came back from the west country with knocks.
