Is how long it is expected both Josh Cullen and Igor Vetokele will be out after both dislocated shoulders in the win at Walsall. Tuesday’s victory came with a heavy price. Cullen, on loan from West Ham, has been outstanding at the fulcrum of the midfield.
Igor, bless him, is simply a walking bandage. Just as many of us were hoping we would start to see the best of him, we lose him again, although the length of his rehabilitation is yet to be totally determined.
For Cullen we have other options. Lapslie, Pratley or even Djiksteel can all play there. As for strikers only Ajose could fill a similar role to Igor. But both Billy Clarke and Jamie Ward give us options.
Talking of Billy Clarke, he will be on the team bus on Sunday and will get some game time. Djiksteel is also fit again after missing Tuesday and Patrick Bauer and could play in that cup thing next week.
