Middlesbrough loanee Alex Pattison is likely to be fit enough to play a part in Saturday's League Two match against Crawley Town. The 21 year old was last seen during the March 16th home game against Macclesfield Town, when he had to be withdrawn 28 minutes into the match, with his ongoing back problems preventing him from continuing. He has been off the teamsheet for the last three matches, receiving treatment on the injury.
He is now back in training, hoping to add to his 29 appearances for the club. That's just as well, given that fellow midfielder Sessi D'Almeida's substitution on Saturday at Swindon Town was in part due to a groin problem he experienced early in the second half. At present, Sessi is still recovering from that problem, but Caretaker Manager Neale Marmon is hopeful that he will return to training by Friday.
There is less hope for Omar Sowunmi, who went off at Swindon Town with an ankle injury. He is 'struggling' and so it can probably be assumed that he will not be involved. Winger Rhys Browne (hamstring) is the other player who won't be involved due to injury. Left-back Carl Dickinson and right-back Craig Alcock are fit but are not being considered for selection.
