Stoke City manager Michael O’Neill has revealed that midfielder Mikel Obi will not be rushed back into action.
O’Neill while addressing the team’s injury issues in his pre-match press conference disclosed that Mikel who started the Potters’ first 14 matches of the season, will not be hurried back to the pitch.
“I suppose the big positive is that no one added to our injury list from the game on Saturday.”
“Sam Clucas is still a little bit away; he is not out on the grass yet.”
Stoke are currently eighth on the league table, eight points away from log leaders, Norwich City.
