Injury Blow As Allen Set For A Month Out

Injury Blow As Allen Set For A Month Out

Swansea City have suffered an injury blow this week with the news that Joe Allen is set to be out injured for a month with a thigh strain.

He picked up the injury during Saturday's 3-1 home win against Doncaster and was brought off during the second half.

He was initially reported this week as being 50-50 to play in tonight's FA Cup replay but instead the 18 year-old will be sidelined for up to 4 weeks according to reports tonight from BBC Radio Wales.

It's a huge shame for the Swans and the player, as Allen has been playing superbly for us this season and is worthy of his place in the starting line-up.

I have the greatest of trust in RM but if this prognosis is true then we MUST get an emergency loan player in. We can't live without Pratley , Bodde and Allen. Some people were saying this when Bodde got injured but Joe came in and not only stepped up to the plate but excelled himself. So much to the extent that there was hardly a difference in our play. The only thing he needs to improve on is to be bolder i.e. shoot more. We definitely missed him last night as we lost his combative yet creative contribution in the middle of the park, and no matter how adaptable Guillem Bauza is that is not his position. Though in fairness he tried hard and didn't let us down. A great pro indeed. However, Joe's absence gave Fulham too much freedom in the middle of the park and as a result we were lucky not to concede more than two goals. But here's the conumdrum. Saying we need a player is one thing, would a suitable player be available at this time of the season? Roberto may have to look abroad again, but it's not something I'd be too worried about, given his record in that department !

big blow for us but i doubt we'll be able to get a quality loan player in now for him. we'll have to make do with bauza.
