I'm managing Accrington Stanley down in League One and I've realised over the winter I'm seeing a lot of players ruled out with cold or viruses. I like the realism here, winter time generally does bring with it harsh weather and therefore nasty viruses and common cold. I also understand that the lower the team, the less advanced their facilities so perhaps it's more likely players will fall ill but...is there a way of combating this? I send the players home every time to avoid any spreading but I still must have lost about 10 players accumulatively over the Winter. Jason Puncheon picked up a cold on two separate occasions in January. Any tips?
