Greg Leigh

Going to be out for a fair amount of time due to a compression fracture to his leg which happened during the Sheffield Wednesday game.
Imo this is a real blow as he certainly has done well so far at Town. Seems like the injury situation is starting to grow now what with Aluko, Burgess and now Leigh.

Only just seen this I'm very disappointed and wish him well, I thought with all the injuries we have had in the past it was time for us to avoid them.😩

At least they are all in action, used to get dozens in training. KVY, Davis and Humphreys all able to play there so not short of cover.

Real shame as he has done so well and really helps give us energy when he comes on, I’ve always been impressed with him.

KVY can play both sides thankfully, so we might start to see him a lot more - especially with burns on wales duty (Inc possible WC squad). So glad we have a deep squad now, all teams will suffer injuries over the season so let’s see how we cope compared to others.

For gods sake..,, Why is it this club never gets
“ simple” injuries like muscle strains, requiring a week or two out . Oh no, we have to go full monty with compressions fractures, facial fractures needing 36 screw fixations, and ruptured ankle ligaments , all needing bloody months to recover from. And let’s have more than one serious injury at the same time shall we, just to make sure the squad is weakened good and proper for at least three months. You couldn’t bloody make this up could you. 🤷‍♀️

At least we have a strong squad these days and should be able to cope ok as long as the list doesn’t continue getting longer.

If KM is serious about promotion prospects this season he had better bring in an established CB and spend big on 20 goals a season striker who knows where the back of the net is, we cannot afford to slacken off strength wise make the back 4 tighter than a ducks arse plus be a real threat up top.
And for me, Jackson is useless and should be shipped out on loan, and Freddie Lapado use him to break up the opposition's midfield as he's not a striker too cumbersome but can be a pain in the arse in midfield.
So if we sort the defense weaknesses out we just might make the playoffs so KM bring in some mature natural talent and learn from your mistakes quickly and stop giving away late goals.
