Alex McLeish has revealed that it’s possible Alan Hutton and Charles N’Zogbia will be back in time for Liverpool, but Carlos and Clarkie are definitely ruled out.
Speaking to the Official Site ahead of the encounter, Alex explained that Alan Smith had been happy with Hutton’s and N’Zogbia’s progress this week, but that Carlos is likely to miss both the Liverpool and Stoke games with his thigh problem, and worst still, Ciaran Clark has suffered a setback in his recovery from a knee issue:
‘It’s a little bit of walking egg shells with a few of the lads. Charles and Alan have been working with Alan Smith, and as far as I can see Alan was very happy with their progress. They said they feel good, we hope that they could be available.’
If both don’t make it in time for Liverpool, the hope is they will definitely be back in time for Stoke.
