Teenager hasn't featured this season

Keith Curle has given an injury update on Scott Pollock, Luka Racic and Joseph Mills ahead of Saturday's League One fixture at Plymouth Argyle.

A groin injury has prevented teenage midfielder Pollock from playing any part this season, including friendlies, while Racic and Mills have more minor issues and should be available for selection this weekend.

"Scotty Pollock has been back on the pitch and he's in phase one of his return to training which is essentially getting him back involved with the football with Nacho the physio," said Curle.

"As soon as Nacho is happy, he'll hand him over to Pablo and he'll step up to phase two and that'll be more progressive.

"Millsy rolled his ankle at the weekend and he's having treatment with Nacho. It's only been two or three days so we're just waiting to see how much that has settled down but we're hopeful he'll be available for Saturday.

"Luka's got an ongoing hamstring injury that we needed to get shutdown. He's had five or six months out, come back in and he's got a level of fatigue that we're trying to manage him through and limit his exposure. I think he needed a rest on Saturday."
