Injury update: News on Ajose, Pratley and Bielik, while Clarke completes final stage of rehab


Head of Medical Services Alastair Thrush has provided the latest update on the club's injuries ahead of Saturday's trip to Bradford City.

Nicky Ajose suffered some mild hamstring tightness in Saturday’s win at home to Wycombe Wanderers. The symptoms have now settled and he will resume training with the squad in the coming days. 

Krystian Bielik has a calf strain. He has begun a specific calf loading programme and will look to progress to running later in the week. He is likely to be out of first team action for the next two weeks.

Darren Pratley suffered a hamstring strain during Saturday’s game lunging into a tackle. It will be at least two-three weeks before he is back in action.

Billy Clarke continues to progress well outside following his ACL rupture last year. He is completing the final phase of his rehab with more sports-specific movements and ballwork drills. He is three weeks away from a return to training after which he will then look to get some match exposure with the U23s.

Jake Forster-Caskey continues to work on quad strengthening in preparation for the ACL operation which is scheduled for next Tuesday.
