Reid sidelined for clash with Boro

04 December 2009 09:37
The on-loan Blackburn midfielder will miss the visit of Boro and Monday's trip to Watford after suffering a hamstring injury.

Reid's absence leaves boss Jim Magilton short in midfield with Martin Rowlands and Gavin Mahon long-term absentees with knee problems.

But Rowan Vine could be on the bench after recovering from a recent hernia operation and fellow striker Angelo Balanta is close to returning from a groin injury.

Winger Lee Cook has stepped up his training following knee surgery and hopes to be challenging for a first-team spot before Christmas.

Magilton was critical of his defence after last weekend's 2-2 home draw with Coventry so Kaspars Gorkss and Peter Ramage could be in line for recalls.
