Bradley Orr came on in the first half for Adam Henley after he suffered an injury but he himself had to be replaced 12 minutes later with a suspected broken rib following a challenge with Danny Shittu.

Scott Dann also had to have his head bandaged after being caught by Rob Hulse's elbow in the first half of a feisty clash.

"There were a lot of tackles flying around today and a couple of cheap shots going on out there, which is disappointing," said Appleton.

"Adam looks as if he has done his hamstring again, which is disappointing.

"Brad might have cracked a rib. He is really struggling with his breathing at the minute and is in a lot of pain.

"He is taking a lot of pain killers and we will get him scanned and X-rayed as soon as possible."

haos reached its ultimate reckoning last weekend with Tony Hibbert looking assured at left back and Osman looking like a cultured ball playing midfielder before busting a gut to get to the back post for a Samuel Eto'o ball. Different chaos but chaos. If Kone scores the winner tonight I fear the world will end.
