Stefan Scougall is progressing well from his knee problem, and he’s been pencilled in for a return by the end of the month, and Ryan Flynn (hamstring) and Jason Holt (ankle) are also close to a return – potentially coming into contention for the game against Scunthorpe United.

Speaking to the Official Site about their progress back from the medical department to the grass, Clough explained.

‘Stefan is doing very well, he is outside running and hopefully we’ll soon be in a position to up his workload and allow him to start light training. From there we hope we won’t be too far away and he gives us that direct running from the middle of the park that we have missed in recent weeks.’

As for Flynn, he added.

‘It was good news about Ryan, we feared the worse when he was limping around towards the end of the Peterborough game, but thankfully he didn’t tear his hamstring, it was more of a cramping issue and muscular strain. We will give him all week to try and prove his fitness for the weekend, but if that comes a bit too soon, then Tuesday’s game at Walsall is a realistic target.’

Finishing with an update on Holt who is at a similar stage to Flynn, he said.

‘Jason has struggled in recent weeks to shake off a niggling ankle problem, but he seems to be getting over it now and again hopefully he will be in contention for Scunthorpe. We are mindful not to risk these lads when they aren’t quite right, but we are also aware that we need a result on Saturday.’
