John Collins still recovering
Influential midfielder John Collins will definitely miss Saturday's match against Norwich, and could be out for a further fortnight after that.

Collins has been missing with a hamstring injury and it hasn't responded to treatment in the way everyone had hoped.

He said: "I can't see myself playing for another two or three weeks. ''It's a long haul and very frustrating for me. "The game against Norwich is important because we have lost two on the trot now and it's vital we bounce back. "There were a lot of positive things to come out of the Manchester United game, the way we had them on the rack, but, after losing to Stockport in the league as well, we can't afford to make it three in a row.

"The key thing in football is how you react to defeat and we must react in the right way. ''I wish I could be on the field with them, but the hamstring tear was in an awkward place and has taken longer than usual to heal. ''All I can do is work away with the physio and get back as quickly as I can."
