Post County Injury Update

Post County Injury Update

With James Wesolowski and Adam Rooney both effectively ruled out of the game last night, Lee Johnson has given us a mini injury update.

Wesolowski was ruled out following a hamstring strain, and the club are awaiting assessments on how severe the strain could be and ergo how long he will be out of action but obviously they hoping for good news.

Adam Rooney was named on the bench despite taking a painful whack to the top of his foot in training. The club are actually sending him for an x-ray to make sure he hasn't chipped a bone, and he was on the bench simply to make up numbers.

David Mellor also missed out after picking up an illness ahead of the game.

We obviously are without Carl Winchester, Kirk Millar and Edijs Joksts who are away on international duty, and we have Charlie MacDonald and Matteo Lanzoni out injured already so it's quite a lengthy list.

Joseph Mills and Connor Brown obviously returned to action last night so hopefully neither of them will feel anything in the coming days following their injury lay offs.

Because of this, Oldham have obviously cancelled the game against MK Dons and manager Lee Johnson explained to the Official Site that with a mounting injury list now, in hindsight it was definitely the correct decision to have made.

'I had a fella on the phone slaughtering me for cancelling the game and saying we have 30 odd players which we haven't. When you look at the players who are away, those on loan and those injured, we are thin on the ground.'

Johnson adds that it was the right decision especially when you factor in Dons would have come into the game fresh having had no game midweek and with how they play Oldham can't expect to just bluster through the game, we need to be on our toes, and with three players away on internationals who would've been in the squad - plus the midweek match, we haven't the numbers to be as fresh as we need to be to ensure we get something from the game.
