Gab's Back, Sidders Out, Reo Not As Bad As Feared

The injury merry go round is in full force as we lose Steve Sidwell to his achilles surgery, but Gabby is fit enough for the bench.

Gerard Houllier has announced on the Official Site today that Steve Sidwell is out for about a month after his achilles injury flared up and it was decided that under going his operation now would be in everyone's best interests.

'Steve will have an operation, you remember at some stage he was about to have it and had to delay it, but his tendon has flared up again so the best thing is to do it now as soon as possible.'

Gerard adds that Sidders should be back in time for the Xmas busy period if things go well.

As for updated news about Reo, Houllier said:

'Nigel is not as bad as we thought, he could be back in training in 2-3 weeks. We thought it was a tear but it is just slight damage to the media ligament.'

The best news of the day is the return of Agbonlahor to the bench for the Blackpool game. He's no where near being fit enough to start the match, but it seems likely he'll get at least 30 minutes tomorrow if not the full 45 in the second half.

'At some stage I hope he will be involved, he will be on the bench but it will be too early to start.'

With Heskey and Carew out it's certainly a boost we needed, because although Delfouneso did well against Fulham he wasn't quite sharp enough to find the net so if it doesn't click for him against Blackpool at least Gabby gives us an alternative option, and will allow us to go 2 upfront to attempt to capitalise on the chances we will create.

Well that answers any questions (if there were any) as to who will be in midfield. In Clark and Bannan we trust.
