Interview: Pearson offers pre-Fulham injury update

Andy King and Nathan Baker could be in contention to face Fulham this weekend.

Defender Baker was replaced at half-time against QPR after suffering a knock to his ankle.

King missed the trip to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, but Manager Nigel Pearson stressed the midfielder is “available” again, after a tight thigh.

Pearson told Robins TV: “Nathan has been a bit sore. He’s loading again so he’s been able to put weight in his ankle. We’ll see how he is on Friday but he has a chance still.

“We have a squad which is pretty available and that means we have great problems, that is who plays and who is left out.”

He added: “If players believe taht when they get their opportunity and they take it then they stay there. The players drive selection as much as availability, their performance drives selection.”
