Norwood out for a few weeks

Another operation for Norwood - looks like he won’t return until sometime in April.

I know he’s not been in the best form lately, but that’s a blow. He’s our most physical striker and we’ll lose that bit of physicality up front. Also, hoping that he’d hit a purple patch and go on a scoring streak.

I wouldn’t bet on Keane staying fit for the rest of the season, too. We need to wrap Jackson in cotton wool.

Hopefully, we’ll get better news on KVY - he shouldn’t be too far for a return to the side.

Thank God Judge gives us another scoring option at the moment, hopefully Keane can start finding the net next plus a few from Nolan maybe.


(Disclaimer... I have picked Keane as 1st goal scorer in this weeks PL :wink: )

Don't forget about Freddie! He may get some more playing time now, and hopefully he'll regain his form sooner rather than later. Norwood's injury certainly explains his dip in form...poor bugger, many of us had written him off. I can't wait til KVY returns; I think we'll be a different team!

COYB!!!

I was told week or Two back he was in need of an OP, thought it was a load of crap tbh, makes sense now. Jackson needs to keep fit and the form going for sure. Forget Sears.

Forget Sears, really? Is he that bad now?

Well you're talking to the wrong person cus for me he's always been crap and since his return looks lost and scared tbh albeit he was out a long time.

I wonder if we'd be able to recall Ben Folami if needed?

All adds up now, he wasn’t moving well in the warm up last week looked like he was holding back.

Another blow for us. Let’s hope Keane can stay fit, but as already mentioned we will miss his physical presence in attack.

For me it’s just another limitation to our options we could do without. Let’s hope the others can step up a gear so we don’t miss him.

This indicates the injury was more persistent than indicated and with KVY injury the slide started

How different it may had been if they were both fit. Makes it tougher to take.
