"We will check everyone out today. We have a number of doubts but we have guys who can come in," said disappointed manager Mark Hughes.None appear (thankfully) to be too serious but I would have imagined all three would have seen significant action on Wednesday.
"Martin took a bang on a knee which has been sore for a while now, but hopefully it won't be too serious. Kolo landed on his heel near the end of the game - it's something he has been playing with for quite some time. It has been painful and he got a bang right on the spot again. Hopefully, both injuries will calm down over the next two days."
"Roque was poorly. He came into training on Saturday and wasn't well, and was bad with tonsillitis again at night with a fever."
You would think Petrov and Toure would not be risked unless they are anything but close to 100% whilst Santa Cruz hopefully would have recovered in time, as I imagine Hughes would have been looking for him to be in the starting line-up.
