And that’s a wrap!

Stay tuned throughout the afternoon for more reaction and build-up to tomorrow’s clash with Forest.

There’s nothing we can do about it, we have to get on with it. We know what we have to do regardless.

For it to be as fair as it can be maybe everyone should kick-off at the same time. We know what we have to do so it’s pretty simple for us.

They’ve shown since we’ve been here in patches, real quality. Hopefully we can show that tomorrow.

It’s tough, a bad one for Tom. Fortunately it’s not a fracture or a break but we’re gutted for him.

He’s looked bright and sharp and he’s delighted to be back out there. He’s been out for a while, he needs to take care. It’s good to have him back out there.

We’ll have to see how he reports today so it’s difficult to say whether he’ll play. We’re waiting on that.

It’ll be in and around it on the meetings, on Zoom. He’s done that this week.

It brings players back and it freshens things up. It’s good to see people back training.

Hopefully it’s not just this weekend and it’s the start of something. It needs to be stopped.

They’re well organised and are tough to break down. They have some good individuals that cause problems so we’ll have to be at it.

It’s massive. I’m out of my comfort zone. Speaking to you guys, that’s something I don’t enjoy. I’m happier out on the grass.
