Dobbie & Pratley Close To Return



In an interview with BBC Sport, Paulo Sousa says that Darren Pratley and Stephen Dobbie are close to making a return from injury.

Darren Pratley has missed the start of the season with a shoulder injury but his return has been delayed because he has mumps, though it shouldn't be long before he's back training with the squad.

There's better news for striker Stephen Dobbie. He suffered a rib injury after coming on as a substitute in the Carling Cup defeat at home to Scunthorpe, but Sousa expects him to return to training next week '100% fit', and available for selection.

Winger Tom Butler has also missed the start of the season, and he played 45 minutes of a Reserves friendly match in midweek, in which we drew 3-3 thanks to a hatrick from Besian Idrizaj.
