Oba crocked for Crimbo

Hardly the best present to be put in the stocking as Chris Hughton revealed today that Oba Martins looks set to miss a chunk of the hectic Xmas schedule. Having spent the vast majority of the Pompey game grimacing up until his late substitution, Hughton revealed the extent of our Nigerian wizard`s injury, saying:

"Oba felt his groin go after scoring on Sunday and he was in for treatment on Monday. All we can do is to assess the injury as the week goes on and we should know more in the next couple of days as to the extent of the problem.

Obviously, with the holiday period coming up, we want all our players fit and on this score we are as healthy as we have been all season. Apart from Oba, we have no other short-term injuries, and this was seen by the strength of our bench at Portsmouth on Sunday. In fact, Shola Ameobi came off the bench to replace Oba and set up our third goal for Danny Guthrie and this is the sort of thing we want.'
