He has blamed injuries for Preston's current position in the table in a statement he gave over the telephone to the LEP. It was a really insightful insight by Hemmings who is presumably saving his words to speak to his horse trainers and jockeys.
Quite frankly blaming injuries ranks as a pretty low excuse. Every club has injuries. We put together an entire new squad in the summer with two players in each position. We have had cover so injuries aren't to blame, it is the assembled squad, manager and coaching staff who are at fault for results.
