Richardson ruled out

18 February 2011 12:00
Accrington defender Leam Richardson is manager John Coleman`s only absentee for the clash with Wycombe. Richardson made only his fourth start in two years against Stevenage on February 5, before picking up a groin strain which caused him to miss the 2-0 defeat to Rotherham on Tuesday. He will undergo a scan next week to determine the extent of the injury. Midfielder Jimmy Ryan was struggling with a hamstring problem prior to the Millers game but made the starting line-up and, after coming through 90 minutes unscathed, he should retain his place. On-loan Burnley defender Kevin Long, who made an unexpected return to the bench in midweek following a broken toe, will be looking to play some part against Wanderers. Midfield duo Ray Putterill and Sean McConville are pushing for starts after coming off the bench in midweek.
