Appleton: 'Alfie's raring to go!'


Michael Appleton has confirmed Alfie May is available for Saturday's clash against Wycombe Wanderers at The Valley.

The striker, who has scored four goals in his last three league appearances, missed last weekend's trip to Stevenage having suffered a concussion in training.

Speaking in his press conference, Appleton said: "Alfie’s obviously raring to go, as you would imagine. Obviously Terry Taylor suffered a head injury on Saturday. It was a bit of a nasty one - he caught a boot across his eye so there was a lot of surface wounds and he’s obviously going to be doubtful. The rest of the players are pretty much where we want them to be."

The Head Coach also provided an update on the fitness of Nathan Asiimwe (quad), Panutche Camará (foot) and Scott Fraser (calf).

“Certainly Scotty’s the closest of the three," he revealed. "He’s not too far away from what the medical team are telling me. I had a good chat with him yesterday; he’s in really good spirits and he’s really looking forward to getting back with the group.

"It’s been good to see Nathan back out on the grass so quickly after the injury. Pan is probably a little bit more of a conservative one in terms of we’ve got to take our time with it.

"You look at those three and, even though I wasn’t as aware of Nathan as I probably was with Pan and Scott because of their experience, they are certainly three players that can definitely improve the group and add depth to it," added Appleton.
