It has been confirmed that Nico Yennaris suffered a sprained ankle during Thursday’s FA Youth Cup defeat against Chelsea.

The young defender was stretchered off after just 26 minutes at Stamford Bridge following a strong challenge but scans have since revealed there is no break.

Everyone at the Club would like to wish Nico a swift and full recovery.
