McGugan Sets Sights On Charlton Game

McGugan Sets Sights On Charlton Game

The news from the City Ground on the current injury situation is slightly better for once, as midfielder Lewis McGugan says he is aiming for a return in time for the meeting at home to Charlton in 18 days time.

It still means he will miss the next two games against Burnley and Preston, but nonetheless it's some much needed good news on the injury front.

McGugan told the official site. 'I'm desperate to get back playing again but the last thing I want is to make the injury worse. I was hoping to be back after the international break but I'm probably looking at the Charlton match.'

It's thought he picked up a thigh strain in the Carling Cup win over Morecambe, but played in the following game at Swansea. McGugan limped off in the 3-1 defeat at the Liberty and hasn't played since. He has a big part to play in our season, so his return to the side is essential for us to make any progress this season.
