FERGIE: INJURIES SIMPLY BAD LUCK
BOSS Darren Ferguson has completed his investigation into how Doncaster Rovers suffered injuries to four players against Gillingham earlier this month and concluded: “we’re cursed!”
Nathan Tyson and Harry Middleton suffered hamstring injuries in the pre-match warm-up, and by full-time Andy Butler and Cameron Stewart had joined them in the treatment room.
Wary of a repeat, Ferguson set about trying to discover whether anything more sinister than a coincidence had occurred.
But, following discussions with Doncaster’s medical team, Ferguson was left to accept it was just a case of rotten luck.
“It’s just the way it goes,” Ferguson said. “You need a bit of luck with injuries.
“It’s just bizarre that we got four in one game including three muscle injuries which is not ideal.We were looking for answers but sometimes there isn’t anything.
“There was nothing different on the day. The warm-up was normal. It was just unusual for it to happen.
“Harry had felt a bit of tightness without anyone knowing about it because he’d kept it to himself.”
CURSE? Darren Ferguson
