Well, this is good news for a change.
Dean Smith has confirmed that Jack Grealish will be available for the visit of Derby on Saturday, although there is some doubt that he’ll actually start.
You’d expect that if he doesn’t start Smith will be itching to give him at least a few minutes and it wouldn’t surprise me if he even gets the second half, if we’re not doing too well.
Personally, I think we have to manage our expectations as to what to expect from him in his first game in weeks.
I don’t see him turning us round straight from the off, as he’s going to be rusty and off the pace (what pace is that then? I hear you ask).
But this will be a massive fillip for the fans and probably the players too.
Wouldn’t it be great if he plays well and leads us to a victory on his return though?
Oh, there’s also good news regarding Alan Hutton.
It seems his injury isn’t as bad as feared and we might see him back before the end of the season.
I know some of us can’t stand him, but I don’t think anyone can fault his effort and it’d be nice to see him get a good send-off.
