"We should be in a good place with the players we have fit to go and put in a good performance"

Sam Morsy has completed a full week of training and is set to be fit for tomorrow's home game against Plymouth, Kieran McKenna has confirmed. 

Town's captain came off of the bench just after half-time in last weekend's draw at Oxford, with the midfielder not risked from the start having picked up a hamstring injury in recent weeks.

Lee Evans has not yet returned to full training however the Blues have been boosted by the return of Idris El Mizouni to the group.

"We’ve had this full week where we’ve trained well and recovered well," said Kieran.

"We’ve been carrying a few niggles. Sam Morsy had his issue and James Norwood had a little hamstring issue last week. We've had a few players playing through injury in the last few weeks.

"Sam’s good. Last week [at Oxford] was a little bit touch and go. We could’ve taken the chance on starting him but we thought that would be a little bit of a risk. He’s had a full training week and he’s ready to go.

"The players who are fit are going into the game fresh and without too many concerns. We should be in a good place with the players we have fit to go and put in a good performance. 

"Lee Evans is still unfortunately not in full training with the group but Idris is back. He picked up a very deep cut on his achilles - a very unusual injury. He had stitching and had to leave it completely free for a few weeks. He joined us on Wednesday so that makes the squad a little bit stronger for the end of the season."
