Cameron Back In Contention

Cameron Back In Contention

Manager Chris Hargreaves has welcomed back Courtney Cameron to contention for the game against Southend this weekend.

The player has recovered fully from his hamstring injury, and it was a blow to Hargreaves to have him missing over the last two matches because he really was starting to show the talent we expected from the youngster in recent times.

Speaking to the Official Site ahead of the Southend game, and specifically about the return of Cameron, Hargreaves again pointed towards the luck we have had this season because his injury coincided with suspensions to both Joss Labadie and Shamir Goodwin and even though the gaffer knows we have quality in the team that doesn't belay our league position, it did reduce our attacking options in a less than brilliant way.

'There are a few injury doubts but Courtney comes back into the frame after shaking off his problem. Shamir is obviously banned, which was a horrific decision and it's a bad error that has cost us one of our best players but a few things have conspired against us this season.'

Hargreaves goes on to clarify that by talking about the Joss Labadie incident, talking again about the - what he feels is a ridiculous decision - to ban Goodwin and of course we have had other injuries that have fallen at the wrong times and we clearly need everyone on song to get us out of the mess we have dug.

The positive or the challenge Hargreaves lays out though is that it gives other people a chance to shine, and even for those who have, he needs them to shine more and he wants Cameron to kick back on now and carry on where he left off.

'There are a few people vying for the spots out wide. We were looking good with Courtney on one side and Shamir on the other. We were looking dangerous but that was suddenly taken our of our hands.'

The gaffer goes on to say that having Cameron back is a great boost, but he was also delighted with the 'diligence' shown by Niall Thompson when he was given a chance against York.
