Gyepes: Will battle on

The Hungarian was an unused substitute in the 1-1 draw at Coventry on Saturday, having been withdrawn after 35 minutes of the previous game against Leyton Orient.

Whittingham has confirmed the selection decision was precautionary, and the problem is not as serious as first thought.

He told the Chichester Observer: "Gabor wasn't quite right for the game (on Saturday). It was time to give him a break and give him some time out.

"He didn't have a test. It was probably just tiredness. His body wasn't 100 per cent, so that was the right way to go.

"I think everything is okay. He'll be in contention for the game against Tranmere."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.
