INJURY UPDATE: Hussey Still A Doubt

Latest Team News Ahead Of Saturday's Game

29 September 2017

Swindon Town could well be without Chris Hussey for the second game running on Saturday.

The left-back missed the 2-1 defeat to Coventry City in midweek due to a slight groin injury, a knock sustained in the win over Forest Green Rovers last week. 

And, with discussions still ongoing with Sheffield United as to how best to handle the on-loan defender's injury, The Reds may well have to do without Hussey when they take on Cambridge United at The Energy Check County Ground tomorrow (3pm Kick-Off). 

"We've not got to the bottom of it yet," Dave Flitcroft said at his pre-match press conference on Thursday.

"We're still waiting on Sheffield United's plan of attack with him and he's still feeling some soreness in the groin area.

"Between us and Sheffield United we're trying to come up with a strategy and a plan to try and get Chris back as soon as possible.

"We haven't got a defining answer on what the injury is and it is not a localised injury sight, so we're still doing other tests and other scans to make sure we do know the outcome of that one."

"We're still waiting on Sheffield United's plan of attack with him and he's still feeling some soreness in the groin area."

Dave Flitcroft On Chris Hussey

Flitcroft also revealed that the club have appealed the red card shown to James Dunne during the defeat to Coventry in midweek.

"We've appealed it as a football club and it is currently with The FA at the minute," Flitcroft added.

"We had to get it in to The FA by 1pm on Thursday so we've appealed the decision for violent conduct, which the referee didn't give and the linesman from a different angle gave it.

"We spent a good twelve, fourteen hours on that and my staff have put a case together and we've appealed it.

"We don't feel it was violent conduct and we've put a case together to say that."
