Lampard in fitness battle

Filed: Sunday, 13th August 2000
By: Matthew O'Greel

Hammers midfielder Frank Lampard is facing an anxious wait to see whether he will be fit to play in next weekends season opener at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard damaged his ankle in the midweek friendly at Rushden & Diamonds, and it is touch and go whether it heals in time for Saturdays game against London rivals Chelsea.

The ankle has been in plaster for the past few days, and should come off tomorrow if all is well.

Hammers boss Harry Redknapp said last night: "'The plaster should be coming off tomorrow but it's touch and go whether he will be fit."

Stuart Pearce, who was also injured in the same game is likely to have recovered in time for selection for the game.
