Great news, hearty good news in fact from Macauley Bonne who has been declared 100% fit and well to carry on playing after undergoing cardiac tests.
Bonne pulled out of the Zimbabwe squad after a ‘heart scare’ following what are regular cardiac screenings.
A club statement said: “The results of these investigations have been discussed with the sports cardiologist and the player will continue to play and train as normal. The club will continue to regularly screen his heart as recommended, as we do with all our players from U15 through to the first team.” Great news.
We may have to wait another game to see the return of Lyle Taylor to the squad, Bowyer said earlier in the week that the striker is touch and go for Saturday lunchtime’s game. There really is no sense in rushing Taylor back.
George Lapslie may well have started on Saturday, with Darren Pratley suspended, but the youngster has aggravated his hamstring injury and will miss out.
Albie Morgan has been recalled from Ebbsfleet, presumably he’ll be in the match day squad.
