Pre West Ham: Injuries
Looking ahead to Saturday`s game and JFK already has an emerging problem in midfield. The reports out of the camp today suggest that Danny Guthrie is attempting to battle the dreaded man-flu. No doubt tucked up in bed with amble doses of Beechams and chicken soup, the loss of one of our form players would be a double blow in the wake of Nicky Butt`s suspension for the match. Kinnear said:
"At the moment we`ve got one fit central midfielder in Geremi. Nicky Butt is suspended, and Danny Guthrie is down with the flu, so we`ll have to see if he recovers sufficiently. The people we have available are not regular starters, and some not orthodox centre midfield men, so it`s serious."
