Ruiz in­jury may Costa him a place

Midweek Sport - - ON THE NOSE -

FUL­HAM for­ward Bryan Ruiz re­mains a worry for Satur­day’s trip to Read­ing.

The Costa Ri­can suf­fered a groin in­jury on in­ter­na­tional duty and had to pull out of last week­end’s vic­tory over As­ton Villa at the last minute.

Cot­tagers man­ager Martin Jol said: “He was in the line-up but then he did some­thing and slipped and felt his groin again, so couldn’t be in­volved.”

Mean­while, back-up keeper Neil Etheridge has had his loan spell at Bris­tol Rovers ex­tended un­til De­cem­ber 20.

The Pi­rates had been strug­gling in League Two when the Philippines in­ter­na­tional ar­rived.

But they have won three, drawn two and lost just one with him be­tween the posts.
