Assaidi crocked and Butland off on loan again
OUSSAMA Assaidi has been ruled out of Stoke City’s trip to Manchester City after suffering knee ligament damage on a training camp in Dubai.
That’s a blow and a half as he injects some much needed pace into the side. Depending on the seriousness of the injury we may not see him again until April.
Better news with Matthew Etherington and Andy Wilkinson both expected to make the squad for Saturday.
Jack Butland is likely to join Leeds Utd on loan next week.
