The Jamaican has been sidelined since injuring his hamstring while scoring a goal against Peterborough last month.

"He previously picked up a left hamstring injury and came back fine from that, and then picked up a similar injury on the right," physio Erol Umut told the club website.

"We joke with him that he's lucky he only has two hamstrings.

"He is working hard with the sports science department every day and is desperate to be involved over the Christmas period if he comes through with flying colours.

"We'll take him day by day. He is a very important player to us and we want to put him back sooner rather than later, but we also want to put him back at 100 per cent and not with a risk of another injury. We'll see how it goes over the next couple of weeks."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
