Diafra Sakho is 100 per cent fit and ready to return to the Irons squad for tomorrow evening’s clash against Watford.
The striker has been missing during a key week of the club’s season but ClaretandHugh was assured this morning that he is now fully fit.
We were told by our senior source at the club: “There is no medical reason why he should not be included in the squad and our best guess is that he will be on the bench.”
The club’s official line has been that the Senegal hit man has been suffering from a minor injury but that has been treated with scepticism by those close to the squad.
It seems certain and has been reported there was a training ground bust-up between himself and another player when it became clear he was not going to be involved in the team for the Arsenal match.
Now, however, his situation has been sorted and it will be interesting to see whether or not he is involved at some stage during the game against the Hornets.
Should he not be then the risk of further negative media speculation could arise at a critical stage of the season.
