Yann Kermorgant: Charlton striker has suffered further injury woe

The Frenchman, who has scored three goals this season, suffered a recurrence of the ankle injury which had previously kept him out for a month during Sunday's goalless draw with Wigan.

"We lost Yann again but hopefully it's not as bad as last time. It doesn't seem like it is," said manager Chris Powell.

"We'll have to give it 48 hours to let the swelling go down. He said it doesn't feel as bad as last time so let's hope he will be available sooner rather than later.

"He was ready to come back but he just landed awkwardly. It's a shame, he's a key player for us as everyone knows.

"He's a quality player, a good link-up player, he sees passes and flick-ons, he's technically very adept and defensively he helps us. He's made himself a bit of a cult hero with our fans and he takes the free-kicks and penalties.

"With us not spending loads of money I got him on a free and he's turned into a key player for us."

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.
