SYLVAIN Legwinski has been ruled out of tomorrow's Championship clash against Scunthorpe with an ankle injury.

The Frenchman damaged ligaments in training yesterday and will be assessed further by medical staff later today.

Tommy Miller was the latest Town player to be laid low by a virus going round, while keeper Shane Supple is also coming back.

Magilton said: “Tommy had a little jog and we will see how he is today. Shane is still feeling a little queasy but I expect him to train today.

“We still have one or two suffering but we seem to over the worst of it.”

Alex Bruce is back in full training after an abductor muscle strain and is pushing for a return to central defence, although Fabian Wilnis has filled in ably during his absence so Magilton has a decision to make.

He said: “We will have a look at both in training and then decide. Three games in seven days may be a bit much for Fabian so we will have a look at that.”

Magilton will also decide whether to make a move to sign Polish midfielder Damian Gorawski after seeing him in a behind closed doors friendly against Watford in midweek with Jordan Rhodes scoring the only goal of the game.

Finnish defender Jonas Portin and German keeper Kenneth Kronholm also played as part of their trial.

Magilton said: “We will sit down and have a chat about the three of them and decide next week.

Richard Naylor is back to restrictive training after recovering from a neck injury.
