Injury update

News on Kebe, Roberts and HRK

Brian McDermott has stated that Jimmy Kebe and Jason Roberts are unlikely to be fit in time for our next Barclays Premier League game against Tottenham.

Neither Kebe nor Roberts have played this season due to hamstring and calf problems respectively, and while they continue to make good progress they are very doubtful to face Spurs. When asked if the duo would be available for that game, Brian said, "I doubt it. Jason is getting better by the day, so too Jimmy. They've not played too much football and you never know but I doubt they'd be available."

In addition, Hal Robson-Kanu missed the Peterborough game with a hamstring injury.

Meanwhile, Brian admits the staccato nature of our fixture list has left his team less able to build momentum than he would have liked, saying, "We're desperate to get the League going, we want to play week in and week out. The Chelsea game still galls me, I know I should move on but it still irks me, having watched it again we definitely deserved a result. But by the time Spurs comes we'll be ready and that will be gone.

"We've planned for this couple of weeks, first we've got a couple of days off then we go to Bray Wanderers for a game on Sunday, 4 o'clock kick off. We'll stay overnight, come back Monday and then lead up to the Spurs game. We had the Sunderland game postponed on Saturday and I felt that the team for that game needed to play so we did that against Peterborough and we'll be better for the game under our belts."

Match tickets for the Spurs game are sold out, but there are hospitality packages available - phone 0118 968 1010 to book.
