Charlton missing Kermorgant

Bradley Pritchard is keeping his fingers crossed that Charlton's 'talisman' Yann Kermorgant will not be sidelined for long.

Kermorgant made his first start in six weeks in Sunday's goalless draw with Wigan, but suffered a recurrence of an ankle injury and could face another spell out.

The French striker still has three goals to his name despite an injury-hit campaign so far and Pritchard admits the Addicks miss his presence in attack.

"He's disappointed and frustrated, he wants to play and sometimes he pushes himself too far," said midfielder Pritchard.

"He's moody anyway - if he scores two goals, he's upset he hasn't scored a hat-trick.

"But he's been looking good in training and for that to happen is frustrating for the whole team, he's our talisman and we look to play off him so when he goes off it is a blow.

"He is important to us, he's the spirit of our team. He's so good in the air and it's a quality we miss.

"It's about keeping his head up and his spirits high, and hopefully it's not too bad."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
