How quickly things can change...
Yes , now it’s the walking wounded.Hope our league position doesn’t suffer too much in consequence. Looks like we’ll be missing Pond now and Stubb’s continual poor fitness will be keenly felt.

City have now conceded as many goals (5) in the 2 league games without Cheikh as we did in the 7 league games in which he played.
Looking a bit thin on the ground in that department and not looking like improving in the immediate future. Hope those forwards can get a few goals under their belts , looks like we’re going to need them!

Just out of interest and no offence intended but I’ve noticed you always say Cheikh whereas I’ve thought his first name is spelt Cheick.
Any idea which one is correct as I’d obviously prefer to get it right?

Any news on Chieck’s recovery?
He last played for us (and scored the only goal of the game) against MK Dons on Saturday 3rd September.
He was absent from the squad Tuesday 13th at Shrewsbury and the following day this was explained to be as a consequence of a stress fracture on the outside of his foot.
We were told he’d probably be out of action for 4-6 weeks, best case scenario.
So as it’s likely he broke the bone on 3rd September that was 5 weeks ago as we were enjoying ourselves in Barnsley last Saturday.
I may have missed an update somewhere but hope he’s on track for a return sooner rather than later.
We’ve done brilliantly in his and other’s absence but it’ll get to a point soon with our incessant fixture list that some of our currently fit players will need a rest, even if just to guard against them getting some sort of muscular type injury.
I’d love to see Chieck get game time if possible against FGR next Tuesday in the PJ Trophy then back at full tilt for Derby away the following Tuesday or perhaps in time for some other herberts we’re playing on the 31st.

I know the club are being extra cautious with this injury as it's one that can easily reoccur if it's not rested properly. I'd guess Fleetwood (H) on the 22nd?
