Press news in...

David Wagner's press conference ahead of WatfordFC will take place at 1️⃣:3️⃣0️⃣pm this afternoon.

DW on Rowe: “What I can say is it still looks like a hamstring injury. He has a scan this afternoon to see how serious it is. He won’t be involved tomorrow.”

DW on Sargent: “We still need to be careful with our players who were out with injury. He only trained last Friday, so this is why we made the decision to take him off at 60 minutes.”

DW on Sargent: “Every team in the world if your top striker is out for a long period. Almost four months - this is never nice. We are happy he is back and we must make sure he stays healthy.”

DW on lack of No.9’s in football: “Josh (Sargent) is a complete striker. He is quick enough to run behind and his technic is good for link-up play. He is good in the air. He can play three games a week on the highest level. He makes other players better.”

DW on Stacey: “I was pleased with attitude and what he has shown in the game. He was very ill and missed the dinner (the night before QPR). Since then he has been fine.”

DW on Grant Hanley fitness: “We will consider and sit together with the the players and medical team. There are so many games this week and in the future.”

DW: "Shane Duffy has still not had his scan. Scheduled for the end of the week."

DW on QPR subs: “No (wouldn’t change subs made). We reflect in the whole game. Sometimes in more detail but the depends when the next game is.”

DW on Van Hooijdonk: “I think everyone should calm down even if Sydney’s name is Van Hooijdonk. Give him time as he hasn’t played a lot of football. Relax in the moment and allow him time to settle. We are happy to have him here.”

DW on Carrow Road form: “It’s not only at home it’s away as it’s the same approach and idea. Now we have nearly a full squad available, everybody can see what this group is capable of. We need energy from the stands.”

DW on Abu Kamara: “We are following him very tight. I gave him his debut, so this shows how much I rate him. Everything has paid off for him, us and Portsmouth as well. I’m looking forward to looking at him in the summer pre-season”


That’s it from David Wagner at Colney for today.
