Petrov Out Of Action

Petrov Out Of Action

Stiliyan Petrov is set for two weeks on the sidelines having picked up a hamstring injury against Arsenal on Saturday.

It's a big blow for the Bulgarian international, who had turned in a number of improved performances of late.

Petrov will now miss matches against Portsmouth and Sunderland with Craig Gardner a likely replacement. The injury to the former Celtic midfielder may also give an opportunity to Martin O'Neill to try out Togo international Moustapha Salifou.

Shame. He was starting to look a good player again, but that's what we have a squad for. NRC is available Saturday, and Berger is also getting back to match fitness (great goal against Bloose reserves last night!). Salifou was also impressive again.

It is a shame as he was just starting to come good. I'd be tempted to give Maloney a run on the right wing, as he gives us natural trickery much like Young on the other side.

A blow indeed. He was in a rich vein of form, and looking good. Agree with Stig that he looked very good on Saturday before having to leave the action. A blow, but an opportunity for young Craig or a.n. other to step up to the plate.

It says a fortnight so hopefully he'll be back for the Man City game and may be even pushing for the sunderland trip.

One less for us to worry about.

Agree The Usual Suspect. We could certainly do with him being available over the Christmas period with the games coming thick and fast. An important period for us, as we look to consolidate a top six placing.
