Loan duo available

6 November 2013

Simon Lappin and Conor Coady are both available for Saturday's FA Cup tie at Colchester United, boss Nigel Clough has confirmed.

Both loanees will be in contention to feature at the Weston Homes Community Stadium, but Clough still hasn't had the all-clear on another recent loan recruit.

The Gaffer, though, is confident defender Neill Collins (facial injury) will be fit for selection in Essex, he remarked:

"We haven't received clearance from Leeds United on Aidy (White); they seem to be thinking about the third round in January, but I will continue to speak to Brian (McDermott) as the week progresses. I will ask the question again because we would like him to play for us.

"Neill (Collins) will be fine, although he has got a far old shiner over his eyebrow. In his position he knows that blows like this are part and parcel of the job and he will just get straight back out there and do it all again."

Collins needed to be replaced at half-time at Shrewsbury Town last week following a clash of heads.
