Duo Injury Woe

Last updated : 07 December 2005 By Brian Cartlidge

Melchiot lasted just eight minutes of the 2-1 home defeat having picked up a thigh injury whilst Izzet sustained a hamstring injury and was replaced just fifteen minutes later.

Meanwhile, Martin Taylor, who twisted an ankle during the same game and had to withdraw at half time, is expected to have recovered in time for this weekends game against Fulham at St Andrew's.
