Injury Round-Up

Derby County have lost midfielder Krystian Bielik for the rest of the season after he suffered a "significant knee injury". Derby head coach Phillip Cocu said: "For him personally it is a huge setback and mentally it is hard on him, but it's also not good news for the team. But he is mentally strong and we will support him as much as we can."

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Corry Evans has suffered a fractured skull and shattered eye socket after being caught by a high boot during the match against Preston North End. Rovers manager Tony Mowbray told the BBC: "As a club we will support him through this next period. He'll be having his operation soon. I don't think it's right to put a timescale on it. He's going to have a plate in his forehead as his eye socket has been fractured and it's something we need to assess through time. I've said to him 'there's no rush, no one is standing here saying we need you back in a couple of weeks.' First and foremost we need to think of Corry and his family. Our medical department have been there every day with his family and he seemed in good spirits when I spoke to him."

Burnley striker Ashley Barnes is to have surgery on a hernia problem.


Macc Appoint Kennedy

Financially stricken Macclesfield Town have appointed their third manager of the season in the shape of Mark Kennedy. Macc have seen both Sol Campbell and Daryl McMahon resign this season, and have turned to a member of Campbell's backroom staff to take the club on. As a player Kennedy was Britain's most expensive teenager when he signed for Liverpool, though it is hard to understand how any half decent scout thought he was worth that price tag. Since retirement, as well as being on Macc's backroom staff, he has coached at Wolverhampton Wanderers Under-23s, Manchester City's academy and worked as a first-team coach with Ipswich Town.


Wednesday Launch 10 Year Season Ticket

The '10-year season ticket' will be valid for a minimum of 15 years, and guarantees fans a seat for the 10 years following the Yorkshire club's next promotion to the Premier League. If they go up of course. The longer it takes them to go up, the longer the ticket remains valid for according to the club. Wednesday said: "There is no maximum to the numbers of years outside the Premier League. For example, if we achieve promotion in 15 years, those first 15 years are free and then the 10 years start to count down."


Gerrard Rules Out January Signings

Manager Steven Gerrard has said that he does not expect Rangers to make any signings in January but does expect two players to leave. Both Greg Docherty and Jamie Murphy are set to move out on loan but Gerrard is not looking to replace either. Gerrard said: "Unless something big happens to one of the players then I don't predict anyone to come in. I always said it would be a quiet month in terms of incomings and nothing's changed on that."


Motherwell Manager To Stand Trial Accused Of Assault

Stephen Robinson has been charged at Edinburgh Sheriff Court with assaulting his partner. The 45 year old allegedly grabbed Robyn Lauchlan and pinned her against a fence at the city's Waverley Bridge. Robinson stated: "I continue to deny any wrongdoing and look forward to having the chance to clear my name at trial."


Stendel Denies Disrespecting Players

Heart of Midlothian's new manager Daniel Stendel has denied former player Christophe Berra's claims that Berra was treated with disrespect when stripped of the captaincy. Stendel has also been criticised by midfielder Glenn Whelan and coach Jon Daly after they left the club. Stendel said: "It maybe looks bad from the outside, but we try to give every player respect and find the best way for both sides. You will find in every club, every decision, it's not really the case that both sides are happy."


Rams Face Spending Charges

Derby County have been charged with a breach of the English Football League's spending rules and could face a possible points deduction. The club has been charged despite posting a pre-tax profit of £14.6m for the 2017-18 season, after a sale of their stadium, valued at £41m on their books, for £80m to the club's owner Mel Morris.
