CENTRAL defender Luke Woolfenden is a doubt for Saturday's trip to Milton Keynes after he limped off the pitch during a friendly match against Bristol City on Tuesday with a tight calf.

Woolfenden has been a familiar figure in Town’s starting XI this season after former manager Phil Brown landed the 20-year-old on a season-long loan deal from parent club Ipswich with minutes remaining in the summer transfer window.

He formed a strong partnership with Sid Nelson – who is now at Tranmere after departing Town on New Year’s Day – and has appeared in all 14 fixtures managed by current boss Richie Wellens.

But Wellens could be without his trustworthy defender, and is expected to assess the former Bromley centre-half's condition throughout today and tomorrow.

Olly Lancashire has also been ruled out of Town's trip to Stadium MK game, meaning the Town boss could look towards new recruits Tom Broadbent and Taylor Curran – or indeed ex-Chelsea man Dion Conroy.

“Luke (Woolfenden) had a tight calf and came off on Tuesday, we will have to see how he is,” said Wellens.

“Olly Lancashire is quite close to being fit – he won’t make the squad for Saturday but he’s quite close. Other than that we’ve got a fully fit squad.

“People always say the manager pick the team, for me the players pick the team.

“Every single day when they train, they have the opportunity to pick the team – if they do their jobs right and put into practice what we have worked on in the week then they keep their place.

“We all have bad games and give the ball away, but you can be in the right positions and try to do the right things.

“I only pick the team from what I see in the games and day in day out on the training ground.”
