Jewell hopeful of Sonko return

IBRAHIMA Sonko is set to return to training today and could come into contention for the visit to Millwall on Saturday.

The big defender missed the match against Crystal Palace with a hamstring injury but Paul Jewell this morning admitted Sonko could come back into his thinking.

There was worse news for Damien Delaney who was rated as “very doubtful” by the manager, the centre-back needing a steroid injection to curb a foot injury sustained against the Eagles.

With Aaron Cresswell suspended, Mark Kennedy is set to step in at left-back although the Town boss would not be drawn on confirming that.

Elsewhere, Jason Scotland is in line to start again after being rested against Palace, Jewell confirming the striker had been suffering from back and hamstring trouble. Michael Chopra is also set to start.
