Little Big Lad rueing reserve team run-out

Tough luck for Little Big Lad, ruled out for "a number of months" having sustained an injury in last night's behind-closed-doors reserve game against Wigan. Better he picked it up in competitive action than when on the club paintballing jolly (see 2:47), I suppose, but not great all the same, given that Obertan Kenobi's continued inconsistency might have seen him given more first-team pitch time.

Little Big Lad was part of a strong second-string side that took on their Latics counterparts, with Dan Gosling, Haris Vuckic and Tamas Kadar also taking part. Scorer of the final goal in the 3-1 win was Bognor Regis triallist Jason Prior, trying his hardest to win a move from the Ryman League South to the Premier League. Whether he did enough to impress the onlooking Silver Fox remains to be seen.

Soon to be back in the stiffs is James Tavernier, whose loan spell at Sheffield Wednesday has ended. The high-flying League One outfit were apparently keen on an extension, but it was blocked because, according to manager Gary Megson, "We’ve been playing James at outside right but they don’t want him to play in the position". A bit harsh, if true, but I guess he's our player after all.
