Dan Potts will still be missing for the next few weeks

Town defender Dan Potts still remains a few weeks away from returning to training according to boss Nathan Jones.

The 26-year-old hasn’t played yet this campaign after suffering an injury towards the end of last season, not featuring since the 1-1 draw with QPR on July 14.

His place has gone to on-loan Sheffield United full back Rhys Norrington-Davies, as Town's only other out and out left back, Brendan Galloway, is also making his comeback from a serious injury suffered last year.

On Potts' recovery, Jones said: “He’s a few weeks off, it’s just a slow one really.

"He cracked a bone and it’s taken a little bit longer than we would have liked, but you can’t rush that.

“We would like him back as soon as possible, to provide the competition in that area, as that’s probably the only area at the minute that we don’t have that real cover and competition.

"I would really like Dan Potts to be fit because it puts a big onus on one person (Norrington-Davies) to keep doing 90s, 90s, 90s, especially with the way he plays, so that's the only thing."
