Jonathan Hogg: Hoping to face Millwall

Town secured their first point of the season thanks to a 1-1 draw with promotion favourites QPR without former Watford midfielder Hogg, who fell ill on the eve of the match.

"I found out at 12.30pm, which messed up my plans a little," manager Mark Robins told reporters. "It changed the dynamic, especially as Oscar (Gobern) missed the midweek game with a hip injury.

"He did his job very well though and helped us get a point. Hopefully Jonathan will clear his illness and be back for next Saturday."

Robins was satisfied with his side's display, but feels there is room for improvement. "I am happy that we have got a point from our opening week," he added.

"It could have been more. We could have got a draw at Forest and won against QPR.

"We stuck to our task well, but I would still like to see us be more positive in attack. We tried to implement our passing game, but it was difficult. We will keep trying, though, and we will get better."

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.
