Cork doubtful for Everton game
Jack Cork came at half time last week in the 2-2 draw at Aston Villa with a shoulder injury and he’s now rated a doubt for the Everton game after it was revealed he’d suffered a fracture.
Describing it as an odd injury, manager Sean Dyche said: “Unfortunately, Jack has a very fine fracture in his scapula. He was landed on and his shoulder bent back.
“The good news, because it’s fine and the nature of it, it’s not as serious as it sounds. Speaking with him, he’s in good shape and said he’s not in any pain, but speaking to the medical teams it’s a risk and reward scenario, another land our fall could cause further damage.
“It’s disappointing news because he’s a good player and a valued member of the squad, and in theory, after the international break at worst, he should be available again.
Danny Drinkwater is back on the grass but not ready to play yet but Dyche explained; “Jack’s played a lot of football for us, but on the other hand we’ve got a lot of good players in there as well.
“We know Jeff can operate in there and we know Westy is a really good footballer. Dwight has operated in there as well, with a three particularly, so we have got options there, but Jack’s a good player and the team and the squad value his contribution.”
Cork will be missing a league game for the first time since we lost 4-2 at West Ham at the beginning of November last season. That’s the only Premier League game he’s missed since he signed from Swansea in the summer of 2017.Follow UpTheClarets:
