Adam McGurk: Injury will be monitored

McGurk was carried off on a stretcher with his neck in a brace after being pole-axed by his own goalkeeper during the first half of Saturday's FA Cup second round tie at Fleetwood.

Albion boss Gary Rowett said: "The ball came in the box and Dean (Lyness) came out to clear and he must've caught Adam at the same time.

"He was out cold. Mind, he looks dazed at the best of times with that haircut!

"Seriously, though, when you see someone go down like that, you hope for the best.

"I think he'll be okay but you worry when someone is knocked out cold."

McGurk will be monitored this week with the hope that the eight-goal forward will be available for Burton's home league game against York on Saturday.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
