@jstodd25: “To be fair, done well with all our internationals to get this far into the season without a case. Hope he makes a speedy recovery

@ShaneyKBxR: “Stay well big man, hope the rest of the squad are fine aswell.”

@Ger72N: “Now have situation where we only have Goldson and Balogun as fit senior CB’s with a load of games coming up, Bassey having to fill in. Had Edmundson not done what he did we’d have options.”

@willytoonsly: “Man’s that good at reading the game he avoided going to training to pass it on.”
