Why miss Maguire?
Harry was absent from the lineup Solshire provided this update on the club captain before the meeting:
“I was talking to him before training yesterday to say that he will participate in tomorrow but he hit his ankle during training so he had to stay at home. I hope it’s okay for the next meeting but I’m not sure. ”. Shortly thereafter, Maguire used his Twitter account to reassure fans about his fitness. He posted:
“Frustrated to miss the meeting due to injury”. He added:
“I work hard to get fit again ASAP!”.
Three posts, three clean nets
Eric Bailey could boast this PIN this season after returning in February with a serious knee injury. While it is still too early for him, with Solshire keen to build his fitness, the Ivorian player cleaned his team’s net against Chelsea, Club Brugge and now Derby, which makes him a competitor to participate against City.
The return of Tuanzibe
After a major success for the U-23 squad on Monday night, which helped the young team beat Stoke City 3-2, Axel was considered fit enough to take a place on the bench in Pride Park. This is an important step forward for the midfielder, whose injuries have held him back from participating this season. His last game in the first team was on December 18, in the Carabao Cup 3-0 victory over Colchester.
