“He did the seven days and had to stay out. But he is back in training and is another one we can have ready for tomorrow’s game.”

On whether there are any other medical issues ahead of the Riverside trip, Dimas added: “At the moment, the medical staff are looking and only at the end of the session will we know who we can count on for tomorrow’s game.”
