Adam Jones has given his reaction to a fresh injury blow for Everton that has now emerged ahead of their game at home to Boreham Wood in the FA Cup.
The Lowdown: Onyango out
Writing in his latest piece for The Liverpool Echo, Jones relayed the latest team news from Frank Lampard confirming that Lewis Dobbin, Reece Welch and Isaac Price will all be in the squad for tonight’s match.
Should Everton play Onyango more?
However, Tyler Onyango will unfortunately miss out with a hernia issue.
The Latest: Jones reacts
Taking to Twitter, Jones has now given his reaction to the news of Onyango’s absence, labelling it as a ‘real shame’:
“Real shame for Tyler Onyango, because I think he’d have maybe even had a good shout of starting tonight.”
The Verdict: Chances will come
Onyango should not be too disheartened with missing out tonight, as his chances will come with the senior team later on in the season.
He has already made three appearances in the Premier League this term, and if the Goodison Park faithful progress further in the competition, then Lampard will have to keep rotating his squad, which should give Onyango some more opportunities to impress.
Unfortunately for the 18-year-old, he has been suffering from injury issues all season, and so he will want to recover this time as soon as he can so that he can prove his fitness to Lampard once he starts getting more call-ups.
