It’s Michael Appleton day on wba.co.uk, but this time the news isn’t as positive as he doesn’t believe Graham Dorrans will return before the end of the season.

Last season’s leading scorer and Player of the Year will miss his 6th consecutive match when we face off against Spurs and although his recovery is on track, Appleton echoes Hodgson’s comments that he won’t be rushed back and if needed he’ll simply be given until next season to complete his recovery.

‘Dozza is ticking along with his rehab and doing what is expected of him. It’s one thing saying you’re fit, and another saying you’re match fit – and the games are running out now. It would be foolish for us to start rushing players back, you want to be sure that every player who starts or comes on is 100%.’

In slightly better injury news, Appleton adds that he doesn’t expect any last minute omissions from the squad that will face Spurs. The bit of tiredness and soreness some players had following the Chelsea match seems to be clearing up nicely – so he expects Hodgson to be able to select from the same bunch of players.
