New Adrian setback



Goalkeeper Adrian is likely to be sidelined for the rest of the season.

The Spaniard is set to miss the last three games of the season after developing a calf problem in training which initially looked as though it would keep him only out of the Swansea match.

However, ClaretandHugh was told this morning that it now looks after a thorough examination that the stopper will be out for the games against Manchester United and Stoke City.

Darren Randolph though has shown such tremendous form on his various call ups that the manager and squad won’t be overly worried.

A training ground source explained this morning there was no need whatsoever to take any chances with Adrian’s injury.

He explained: “The feeling is it will need some recovery time and it is all but certain he will be ruled out of action until pre-season.

“It will give Adrian game time over the key part of the season and he is more than capable of rising to the challenge as we have seen several times already this season.

    No issues at all with Randolph.In my opinion Adrian leaves me with my heart in my mouth at times with his antics before clearing.

    Randolph will be solid as he has been in the cups.
    More than disappointed by some of the stuff I’ve seen criticising Adrian though. Suddenly he’s getting the mcknightmare treatment?
    Lets sell him as he’s no better than jussi all of a sudden …….
