And Emanuel Pogatetz will soon be sporting a protective mask to get back in action ... by preventing further damage to his fractured cheekbone.

Steve Agnew: “He’s been fitted for a face mask and once that’s on and he gets the nod to join in games he’ll be challenging for a return.

“He’s been jogging and everything’s healed but he can’t have any contact.

“The good thing is that when he comes in he’ll be physically fit but that is up to the medical people.

“Poggie’s mentality towards any injury is how quick can he get back so I’m sure it will be sooner rather than later.

“The young players respond to having an experienced player and the likes of Emanuel and Chris coming back will give us the blend we need.”
