Carlos Corberán has delivered some really positive news regarding the fitness of Jeremy Sarmiento and Semi Ajayi.
The boss revealed both players successfully navigated Thursday’s training session with the first-team group and stated the duo will be involved in the matchday squad on Saturday for the visit of Hull City, should they get through Friday’s work without issue.
Ecuador international Sarmiento hasn’t featured since the end of September, with Nigeria international Ajayi’s last action coming against Plymouth Argyle two weeks ago.
Carlos said: “Jeremy Sarmiento and Semi Ajayi are two players who, if they complete the training session on Friday, can be part of the matchday squad on Saturday.
“They both trained on Thursday with the group and they came through that fine.
“It’s always really positive to add players back to your squad when you have been missing plenty of them in recent weeks.
“With Semi, we have one more option at centre-back and he was playing in the first XI at the start of the season.
“Jeremy is a player who can give us plenty of possibilities in attack, so both players being back is positive news.
“Bringing players back in always increases the competitiveness in the squad, which then helps increase our competitive levels against our opponents.”
