LJ INJURY UPDATE



Lee Johnson has given a full injury update ahead of the visit of Plymouth Argyle. "We have a couple of knocks (from Wimbledon) that you always get in games. So, it may well be that there one or two changes for this game, not so much through injuries but through freshening it up and making sure that for the next game, we're fully fit as a squad. Danny (Graham) had his scan and it was good news, there wasn't an awful lot showed up. He did go down in training today but seemed to be OK on the physio bed. I'm a little bit worried about it we'll have to see how it settles over the next couple of days."


Luke O'Nien was on the bench at Wimbledon on Saturday, but Plymouth might come too soon for him in terms of being in the starting line up, "It would have taken a lot to put him on the pitch. He's still growing in confidence; we were at the point where we felt we needed that option [from the bench] for five or six minutes in a couple of roles. It's got to come from Luke with this injury, it can't come from me or the physios. He's got to be in a position where he feels confident it's not going to recur. Luke is always wanting to work hard and is always demanding, which I like. He's an interesting character and my type of personality, that's for sure."


Conor McLaughlin and Denver Hume will both undergo hernia surgery this week. "Conor and Denver are having an operation in London. Denver is obviously nursing a hamstring injury as well so it's probably the best time for him to have the hernia operation. The prognosis will depend on what surgery they go for, but we hope Conor won’t be any longer than three-and-a-half weeks max."


Lynden Gooch is still in self isolation following testing positive for COVID-19 last Friday. He remains asymptomatic.
