Pre Hammers: N`Zogbia fitness

Pre Hammers: N`Zogbia fitness

With the midfield already light of Nicky Butt for the monster game against West Ham this Saturday, there is the semi-timely boost that Charles N`Zogbia might be fit for the game. Whether he`s adequately prepared mentally following his latest whinge is another thing though... Chris Hughton commented:

"Charles was a blow, but we`re hoping he`s going to be OK. He`s got a dead leg, and he was very sore and stiff after the game. But that`s the nature of the injury. We`re optimistic he`ll be OK for next week, but he certainly won`t be doing much training.

I`m not sure there are too many coming back for the next couple of weeks. It`s thin, and at the moment we`re one short because of suspension as well. It`s a question of trying to get players back as quickly as we can and not picking up any more injuries."
