Team news: Maguire to be assessed

Chris Maguire will be assessed after he was forced off in the first-half of last night’s win over Gillingham, according to Jack Ross.

The Scottish midfielder was recalled to the starting XI for the visit of Gillingham on Tuesday, however, after just 18 minutes Maguire’s night was cut short as he picked up a knock. 

Speaking post-match, Ross provided an update on the 30-year-old and also offered an insight into his team selection as he made three changes, which saw Jack Baldwin and Duncan Watmore miss out.

 “It was an impact injury to his calf, he was quite sore," he said. 

"I thought he started really well, he is a bit sore. He will be assessed.

“Sometimes they can clear up quickly, we will have to wait and see.”

"Duncan had a slight groin problem, we could have risked him,” he continued. “All being well he will be back on Saturday in the squad.

“Jack was just a rest, we took him out to give him a rest mentally and physically.

“He has played a lot of minutes. Mentally it has been a big change for him this season, he has coped with it in the main really well.

“With the squad, I have the opportunity to do that and he will be the better for it.”
