THE Blues have been hit by a flu bug ahead of their Championship clash at Charlton.

Fabian Wilnis was this morning told to stay in bed while Gavin Williams is also badly affected.

Manager Jim Magilton is also suffering and is concerned that more Town players will be hit over the next 24 hours.

Magilton said: “There are four or five who are quite bad today. Fabian stayed at home and we will see how he is tomorrow.

“We will stay overnight in London and hope more are not affected. We have players on stand by to come down to London tomorrow if needed.”

With Alex Bruce ruled out for at least a week with an abductor strain, Wilnis was expected to start at centre half.

Chris Casement and Sito have been added to the squad as a precaution with David Wright pencilled in to move into the middle.

The game at the Valley tomorrow is all-ticket with 3,000 Blues fans travelling.
