Walsall boss Dean Smith has today said its touch and go as to whether leading striker Tom Bradshaw is fit to face Notts County on Good Friday in what I dare to say is a relegation six pointer!
Smith said “We will just have to wait for this week and see how he is.
“He pulled up in training on Thursday. There was no problem on Tuesday but he pulled up on Thursday, feeling his hamstring again.’
“I suppose it was always a risk playing him at Wembley but two days after he trains and gets through it OK.’
“Unfortunately on Thursday he felt it again and he didnt make Saturday’
“I don`t think (there is any more we can do) he is doing all his injury prevention work and all his strengthening.
“He has obviously had a weakness in that area and (physio) Jon Whitney has been working hard to get him through that weakness.”
Bradshaw has been sidelined six times this season with a persistent hamstring problem and Smith hopes that with training strengthening the problem will disappear for the next campaign.
