Josh Vela set for late fitness test

Midfielder’s injury not as bad as first feared

Josh Vela has been cleared of serious injury and is set for a late fitness test ahead of this weekend’s visit of Fulham to Macron Stadium.

The midfield, who netted his first senior goal in Tuesday’s draw at Charlton, left the field on a stretcher after a coming together with an opposing player.

Neil Lennon allayed fears of any serious injury in his post-match press conference on the night, and further assessment has since revealed a minor knee strain.

Vela could now feature in the weekend's game against Fulham, subject to coming through training and a possible fitness test on the day.
