As soon as Aaron Mokoena landed after an attempted challenge with an Ipswich player yesterday, which was almost directly in line with where I sat, you could see that there was something wrong...
When he got up and tried to carry on, despite holding his leg and being in obvious pain, this became clearer, but did this stop him from putting his boot in again to make another challenge?
No, not at all!
After this though he went down and was eventually stretchered off - when the ambulance pulled up outside Fratton and he was taken away in this the worse was feared...
Although it was confirmed by Steve Cotterill, on The Pompey Site, that scans revealed that there is no leg break, as first feared, and the injury is in fact not too serious although it is still almost certain that he will miss Palace on Tuesday night: 'it's a big relief that Aaron's okay. He had a scan and has taken a bad whack on it but there's no break.
'It's been hard enough to get the sort of squad we have together without losing anyone to serious injury.
'It looks doubtful that Aaron will be available for Tuesday night's game at Crystal Palace, but you never know.'
I like Moko, he wears his heart on his sleeve and never gives up the battle - as his initial continuation despite the injury just highlighted again - although I am still not convinced by him as a midfielder!
For me in the back four alongside Rocha John Rocha, in place of Ibrahima Sonko, would clearly benefit us, but hey ho that is Cotterill's call to make...
One thing I do know is Hayden Mullins had a decent game in midfield but we certainly had more threat about us from this area when Michael Brown came on for Moko, and Mikey would be in my side every week without a doubt!
This looked a decent central pairing, so I look forward to seeing it again on Tuesday, as I assume we will...
