Back in July, Griffiths suffered a calf strain that he has still not recovered from, while he has had fitness issues which saw him left out of the club’s pre-season programme in France – with one fan suggesting his injury may not be telling the entire story.

Also in July, Lennon revealed that Johnston “has been having problems with his calves and he needs to see a specialist” to help him with the issue.
