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."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
