Ogbonna ready to replace Reid

reidandogbonna-800x504Angelo Ogbonna is available for selection at Burnley this week reports the Head of Medical and Sports Science on WHUFC.com.

However, he is unlikely to fully match fit with Vandenbroucke admitting because of the long period of time he was out for , he will also come back early for pre-season.

Winston Reid is out this week weekend after having successful surgery this week to rectify a chronic problem that he has been playing with in the background for some time.

Winston will work with the physio department for the next two weeks. He will then have some time off, during which he will follow a personal programme, after which he will return and prepare for the pre-season.

The absence of Winston Reid and lack of match fitness of Angelo Ogbonna could give Declan Rice his first appearance after captaining the Under 23’s to promotion on Tuesday. He has made three appearances on the Hammers bench in recent weeks but could play some part at the weekend depending on what formation Bilic decides to deploy.
