Bolton v Ipswich: Mick McCarthy has revealed he is sweating over the fitness of midfielder Luke Hyam after he sustained a calf injury in Tuesday night’s win over Nottingham Forest.

Hyam underwent lengthy treatment in the wake of the 3-1 win, in which he scored his first Championship goal.

And the Blues boss this morning said Hyam would not be training today as he evaluates his fitness ahead of the trip to the Reebok.

McCarthy said he was “hopeful” Hyam would be fit with Andy Drury standing by to replace him.

Nigel Reo-Coker will definitely miss the visit to his former club with the hamstring victim hoping to return to training next week.

But McCarthy reported that he had no other new injury worries as he looks to keep his side out of the bottom three.

  • Brian, what evidence you have that Hyam's injury was caused by lack of match fitness? In fact, what evidence you have he is not match fit in the first place, given he started on Tues and had a great game? You do realise that in between matches, professional footballers train (and have pre-season) to get the fitness levels ready for 90 mins. All players pick up injuries, not least in colder weather, and those who play the ball-winning midfield role he does are more prone than others.

  • It is not surprising that Luke picks up niggling muscle strains as he has never been allowed to build physical match fitness through lack of selection in the team. As I stated before his style of play, tenacity and example the crunching tackle in the Forest match ( thanx 4 using my superlatives) means he has to be 110% for optimum performance. He needs a run of 10 matches then we will have the new Roy Keane at his best as a player, not a manager.
