McCann Provides Injury Update

29 January 2021

Grant McCann has provided an injury update to the press ahead of the Tigers’ clash with Swindon Town at the KCOM Stadium this Saturday.

The Tigers’ Head Coach reported that Callum Jones and Tom Eaves are still continuing their return from injuries and are still a number of weeks away from a potential return.

George Honeyman will be assessed ahead of Saturday’s clash with the Robins after hobbling off during the defeat at Accrington Stanley on Tuesday night.

McCann says that Honeyman is “touch-and-go” having not trained since the match at the Wham Stadium, but will make a decision on the in-form midfielder before Saturday’s clash.

“George Honeyman is touch-and-go for the weekend,” said McCann. “He got a nasty kick on the shin, but he’s expected to be back out training with us today but it’s not a long-term concern. We’ll make a call on him before the match on Saturday”

Brandon Fleming has suffered a setback after sustaining a groin injury, and with up to nine games coming before the end of February, McCann confirms that the Club are looking for cover in that area.

“Brandon has suffered a setback with his injury,” confirmed McCann. “Fingers crossed for him it’s not too long as he’s in good form and he’s been unlucky with the form of Callum Elder not to be starting, but we need to be strong in case we pick up an injury, so we are looking at cover.”

Grant McCann also confirmed that Martin Samuelsen is currently travelling to Denmark to finalise a loan move until the end of the season with the hope of the Norwegian getting some game time under his belt.

“Initially it’ll be a loan for Martin,” he said. “I get on really well with him, but the current form of other midfielders have kept him out of the team and we want him to be able to go and play some football.”
