Eric Lichaj: Requires double hernia operation

Lichaj, who has made 26 appearances for the Reds since moving to the City Ground from Aston Villa on a free transfer in the summer, limped off in the recent 4-1 home defeat to Wigan.

The 25-year-old American becomes the latest name on a lengthy list of absentees for Forest, joining fellow defenders Kelvin Wilson and Jack Hobbs, midfielders Henri Lansbury and David Vaughan, striker Dexter Blackstock and the versatile Chris Cohen on the sidelines.

A statement on Forest's official website said: "The club cannot set an expected date for Eric's return but will give supporters an update on his progress in due course."

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.

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.
