Collison facing Final fitness fight


Filed: Monday, 7th May 2012

Jack Collison is a major doubt for Sunday week's play-off Final after dislocating a shoulder against Cardiff City at the Boleyn Ground this afternoon.

The Welsh international, who scored both goals in the semi final first leg at the Cardiff City Stadium last Thursday went down heavily in the opening minute of the second half and was immediately replaced.

The 23-year-old was rushed straight to hospital , - but not until his dislocated shoulder was reset- where he underwent an MRI scan on the injury. And Sam Allardyce confessed after the game that the midfielder was now a major doubt for the forthcoming Wembley final.

"It looks like a dislocated shoulder, unfortunately," confirmed Allardyce. "Not knowing the extend of it yet we wouldn't rule him out straight away.

"Hopefully we'll know the extent of the dislocation - which will be done via MRI scan as quickly as possible - soon."

Collison has made 35 appearances for West Ham so far this season, having fought back from a career-threatening injury.

Of his six goals during the current campaign, half of them have come in his last three games (one against Leicester and two at Cardiff).

''A blessing in disguise, maybe. We looked so much better with more dimensions after Jack had left. It was great to see the potential of Nicky Maynard realised with a cracking goal at the end of the game. Looking forward to Sam Baldock and Nicky on the field with Ricardo Vaz Te every week next season.

Carlton Cole has been magnificent playing by himself up front - but that has not brought the rewards we sought. Jack Collison is another who cannot contribute to play with others. Really enjoyed the last few games. I can see some hope for the future now. COYI.''
