David Okagbue Facing a Spell on the Sidelines

Walsall's already thin backline has been dealt another blow.
Bescot Banter - Walsall FC NewsWalsall Head Coach Mat Sadler has confirmed that on-loan Stoke City defender David Okagbue has joined the ranks of walking wounded at Poundland Bescot Stadium.

Speaking in the wake of Saturday's defeat to AFC Wimbledon - a match that saw Priestley Farquharson and Oisin McEntee limp off with injuries - Sadler confirmed Okagbue will likely miss the next month of action after picking up an injury in a recent training session.

First discussing Priestley and Oisin's injuries, Sadler went on to confirm David's status as well, he said; "Priestley, there’s a bit of worry around that so we’ve got see what’s going on there.

"He’ll be scanned early this week and we’ll get a clearer picture so we’ll see on that, there’s no point guessing on that because we don’t know.

"Oisin, hopefully not too bad and David is probably out for another 2-4 weeks, he’s took a bang on the ankle but that’s why we’ve got a squad, we’ve got to readjust.

"There will certainly be no one feeling sorry for themselves in our squad and that’s the way we have to approach it, put the team out, be ready and prepared to win the next game."
