Terry Kennedy has been in front of the cameras, and manager Nigel Clough has talked about the performance of newbie Steven Davies.

Starting with Kennedy, he was interviewed by the Official Site and he explained that he will still determined to play an important part in our end of season run in, despite news that he would be sidelined for the next four weeks with cartilage damage.

Having picked up the problem in the game against Crawley last month, Kennedy said he was remaining positives and determined to get back on the pitch in whatever games remain when he returns to fitness and contention.

‘It is good news that I will only miss around a month or so and hopefully be back in the team before the end of the season because when it happened I thought it could have been months and months on the sidelines. But it is still frustrating, it has been such a good few months for me personally, having got myself fit and into the team. After signing a new contract recently I was really looking to push on, but something always seems to happen. I have to keep working hard, though, and believe that if I do my opportunities will come along again.’

As for Clough, he spoke about our new loan signing Davies who made his debut against Fleetwood Town at the weekend, having only just joined us 24 hours previously from Blackpool.

It was a disappointing afternoon overall as the gaffer has already spoken about, but in other interviews he did say the performance of the 27 year old was at least a positive for him.

‘Steven made a pleasing contribution on his debut; he looked bright and tried to lead the line and link up play through the middle when possible. We’ve chased Steven for a while because we know his talents. He did well with Matty Done and there’s plenty more to come.’

Added to that mini interview, was the revealing of a selection dilemma at centre back for our coming game.

Chris Basham picked up his tenth booking of the season at the weekend, and Clough knows it will give others a chance to impress and stake a claim for the centre back spot themselves, but it’s about who to give that chance to this week in training.

‘It is a blow to lose Chris for two games, but the lads will muck in. We have got Alcock and Freeman to add to the squad defensively and perhaps John Brayford will slot in centrally.’
