Febian Brandy faces an anxious wait before discovering whether he will be available for selection against MK Dons this weekend, writes James Shield.
The Sheffield United midfielder has been undergoing an intensive treatment programme since complaining of a tight hamstring during the second-half of Saturday’s defeat at Bradford City.
David Weir, the South Yorkshire club’s manager, insisted that Brandy had been withdrawn as a precautionary measure before conceding “it is too early to say” if the 24-year-old is destined for a prolonged spell in the treatment room.
“Febian had a tight hamstring,” Weir said. “So we thought it was best to substitute him rather than risk making the problem any worse.
“That’s the only thing you can do in those situations. There’s no other course of action you can take.”
“We’ll be taking a good look (at the injury) and then we’ll know exactly what the situation is,” added Weir. “These things can sometimes take a few days to settle down.”
