John-Joe O’Toole and Sam Hoskins could both miss Tuesday night’s Checkatrade Trophy game against Southampton under 21s after coming off in the game against Scunthorpe United at the weekend, while Regan Poole (away with Wales under 21s) is unavailable for selection.
“We will have to assess Sam and John-Joe,” said boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
“Hopefully neither is too serious but we will make changes for the game, I have to.
“I want to keep the squad fresh, everyone has been working really hard in training and I want to give some of the other players a chance.
“We will put a strong team out and I want us to be competitive but we need to be mindful of the run of games we’ve got coming up.
“David Cornell and Lewis McGugan both did well coming into the team on Saturday and we need to give these players an opportunity.”
