Wiggy Back

Having missed the Plymouth Argyle match last weekend due a problem with eye sight, Rhoys Wiggins could be in the team to face Colchester United this evening - a match to be televised on Sky Sports.

Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Wiggins is quoted as saying: "I was running over to training and they (the dogs) were running towards me. I carried on running and didn’t think anything of it because they were only little dogs. But one of them jumped up and bit me on the leg! It was like a little scratch, nothing major, but just to make sure I went for a tetanus injection. But that wasn’t the problem. On Thursday, it was pouring down with rain. I think one of the lads had a shot and a big lump of mud just hit me on the side of the face. I got home after training and my vision was blurry. I got a bit of grit or a stone in there. It got worse towards the end of the night but I still went to sleep. When I woke up, my eye was red raw. I’d been irritating it and, where I’d been rubbing my eye, I’d scratched all the surface. On Friday morning, I went to Accident & Emergency. That was where they told me I had scratched the surface and I got transferred to the eye clinic. I’ve been on antibiotics since to clear it up and now it’s fine".
