Dyche to rotate
Sean Dyche has confirmed today that neither Stephen Ward nor Chris Wood will be ready to return for this Saturday’s FA Cup tie at Manchester City and he’s also reported that Scott Arfield has suffered a minor hamstring injury and believes it is improbable that he’ll be available.
Asked if he’s likely to rotate his squad, he said: “We have to. We have no choice. The players have played two games in three days, the bulk of them. They are, as much as I work them hard and their will to work hard, humans and I don’t forget that.”
He added: “I just get on with it. We are probably, which is unusual for us, as stretched as we have ever been. We at least have a squad that feel is rounded and has more depth.
“I must make it clear, every club has different challenges. Pep Guardiola’s at Manchester City is to win everything, or as much as they can. So it is different. A lot of pressure and stress comes up with that. Ours is to continue improving. Our overriding thing is to continue improving.”Share this page :
