Which isn’t ever fun is it, especially if what you’re waiting for could be bad news.

On the flipside the ‘possible’ bad news might not be as bad as feared?

Either way you’re still waiting! Which is what we’re doing regarding the scan of Rory McArdle’s shoulder, the one he damaged to be left in ‘clear pain and discomfort’ on Saturday in a goalless draw.

As far as I’m aware, unless I’ve missed something, the results of a scan to determined the severity of McArdle’s injury sustained against Bury at the weekend aren’t yet know known?

We know he’ll miss Burton tonight though.

Phil Parkinson wasn’t able to offer much more when taking to the Official Website.

‘Rory will be having a scan today (Monday). The shoulder was obviously dislocated on Saturday so we are waiting to see the extent of the injury. He has been in this morning with his arm in a sling. There is clearly pain and discomfort there for Rory, we’ll just have to see what damage has been done when the shoulder came out.’

The news was better on Steven Davies though, with it initially feared another long-term spell awaited the striker with injuries hampering his season so far.

When he injured his knee against former club Blackpool the worse was feared but Parkinson was able to add he had ‘trained most of the session’ on Monday morning with that ‘certainly great news for ourselves and Steven’ with all preparing for the worst.

As he battles back from his broken leg in September Paul Anderson is also coming along and is set to play in a Development game against Burton tomorrow with Filipe Morais making further progress in his return from his knee injury suffered in pre-season.

The boss finished by saying.

‘All being well, Paul will play in the reserves at Burton on Wednesday. We are hopeful that Filipe can play in our reserve game the week after (against Wigan Athletic). For me, if they get through those games, we can begin to consider them up for contention once again. If that is the case, it will be a huge boost for us.’
