For AFCB though it is a cruel blow. Stephen would have been great to have playing in the team until January and there is now a real worry over how bad his shoulder injury is. We will never know if he would have been able to save Lansbury's shot on the day, but Stephen Henderson's absence now is much bigger than missing him for just one match, being out for an expected six months having had a dislocated shoulder.
Ryan Allsop was turned to by Eddie Howe and it is likely that Ryan will be selected again for the Leceister City game next weekend. I was not alone in thinking that Ryan is still looking as shaky as he was during the Blackburn Rovers match at home. I can't quite understand how he has lost some confidence all of a sudden, but he did not come for crosses and he is still learning to throw out quickly from the back when he seemed so assured last season in League One.
|Henderson was looking a great addition to AFCB's squad and it must|
be devastating for him to get injured now.
