There were fears on Sunday key defender Aaron Francis would join the lengthy long-term injury list, but Rutten said scans on Francis’ ankle on Monday showed “nothing too sinister”.

“It’s a pretty severe ankle sprain, but nothing more than that,” Rutten said.

“He’ll be looking after it and we’re hopeful we’ll get him up this week.”


Good night sweet prince, hope the amputation goes well

Not important
Aaron seems to be a changed man in a lot of respects & all for the better imo.

Aside from his football improving he seems more confident about himself & pretty open emotionally on the field.
In the past he seemed very unsure or reserved in his demeanor, particularly if something went either side (good/bad). This year we have seen him show real emotion when he does something well or poorly. His obvious devastation on the weekend when rolling/spraining his ankle was evident of a man once not considered open to showing that. Whatever personal work he's done on himself, considering his issues, he should be thoroughly commended.

Has always come across as different to a lot of other players. A bit more sensitive and a gentle nature.
