Knott plays through the pain
BILLY Knott played through the pain barrier in last week’s defeat by Bury, Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth has revealed.
The Sunderland loanee was an omission from the side that were held to a draw by Accrington, with a foot injury keeping him sidelined.
He played despite the injury last week but it was too much for him yesterday.
Ainsworth said: “Billy has been struggling with a foot injury, which people haven’t known. He’s been playing through a bit of pain for me and last week it really detracted from his performance second half, so I made the decision to let Billy have a week to rest that foot.
“He’s a big player for us and Billy Knott will be back.”
Ainsworth added full back Nick Arnold was ruled out on Friday with a groin injury. Marvin McCoy replaced him in the side that faced Accrington.
