The injury list is super depressing but the one good thing that has come from it is the emergence of Elvis.

He held his place at the tail end of last season but of late he's really come into his own. It sounds as if he had another good game last night on top of his recent man of the match performances against Scunthorpe and Barnsley and he was apparently impressive in the previous round of the Checkatrade, obviously capped with his great goal. So four really strong performances in a row for him since being harshly dropped in the first place.

He's now the latest in Ricky Duncan's production line to have established himself in the side.

Franck Moussa 2008/09
Kane Ferdinand 2010/11
Dan Bentley 2012/13
Jack Payne 2014/15
Dru Yearwood 2017/18
Elvis Bwomono 2018/19

And that's not including the likes of Mitchell Pinnock (released 2014/15); Alex Woodyard (released before 2013/14 season) and Stuart O'Keefe (left in 2010 exodus) who Ricky Duncan nurtured but have found success elsewhere. Well done Ricky:Clap::Clap: that's nearly one a year :Stunned:before even counting the youngsters we've sold before they've made a first team appearance. And obviously there are a few more in and around the squad like Ted Smith or Nathan Bishop who (no offence Mark Oxley, they just happen to be keepers!) we hope will be joining them as regulars, maybe even within the year.

So when Demi returns from injury does the Cyprus captain go left-back instead of Hendrie, right midfield if we're playing 4-4-2 or just on the bench?

I bet Ron will be regretting signing off on that 3 and a half year deal for Demi this time last year!
