With Fonte I thought he just had a groin tweak from the Ipswich game. He's on video Running around at MP yesterday. if you're running on grass you can't be far from full fitness surely... although in fairness it's only light jogging in the video. I'd still be surprised if he's not back v. Burton.

My concern in any case is he's already living up to his reputation for being a bit injury prone.

With Cairney as I've always said I'm convinced he had something else invasive done in Barcelona over the international break which would mean a lengthy recovery period, and the longer the club remains silent on it the more it worries me.

It's such a shame because we're a different class with those two

I can't Fonte starting. Maybe the bench at best with Ayite upfront again. Of Fonte can get the last 20 then great.

TC is the bigger worry for me. Once again it seems everyone is capable of scoring, only Piazon has scored more than one out of the 9 scored so far this season, so Fonte missing a game or 2 (or 3 or 4) is not a major concern

We have been hampered by lack of central forwards for so long now. Buying one injury prone player and a reserve was never going to do it. We know our problems have been not converting chances created even when we were scoring freely last season. Still the team has had to prove in can play with a false 9.

 Despite the fact Burton are really the first team we have played this season who we would consider struggling. They will be hard to break down and as always will be playing with a good spirit.

Can never see the sense in having anyone on the bench who is not fully fit.
Beginning to think we may have a "Sick Note" on our hands in Fonte, does Stats Boy take the responsibility for that.

Well it's been at least three days since he's taken the blame for something, so why not?!
