West Brom loanee Rayhaan Tulloch is yet to return to full training after suffering another injury setback in his recent recovery.
The 19-year-old returned to the Baggies back in September after picking up a hamstring injury during his loan with Doncaster Rovers.
Initial scans suggested that Tulloch would be back in October, but that has yet to happen with both West Brom and Doncaster approaching busy periods.
Darren Moore has commented on Tulloch’s situation and admitted that he had expected to have had the forward back in Yorkshire by now.
“He had a minor setback and had he not had that he would have been back with us now,” he told the Free Press.
“The setback meant he had to rest for a few days before starting the recovery programme all over again. He’s got to go through all that again to get back up to speed.
“We’ll be making contact with West Brom to see where he’s at.”
Spending a season with Moore will have been very benefitial for Tulloch, who has instead suffered a couple of big blows.
A number of West Brom loanees have either tasted great success or picked up injuries this season, and there appears to be no in-between.
Callum Morton, another young forward, scored his first goal for Lincoln and then suffered a freak shoulder injury in the gym.
That has put his loan spell at doubt, with the 20-year-old having to undergo surgery – something we hope doesn’t happen to Tulloch.
Fingers crossed, Tulloch will be back and firing for Doncaster over the Christmas period.
