Hughes Hoping to be Fit For Saturday

After having had such a fine start to the season, Aaron Hughes will no doubt be a little miffed to miss out playing for his country tonight.

Unfortunately, Hughes picke dup an eye injury against Spurs on Saturday and has withdrawn from the Northern Irish squad as a precaution seemingly in an attempt to be fit for our clash with Liverpool, at Anfield, this Saturday.

Speaking about the injury, Hughes remarked,

'It happened ten minutes from the end and it was stapled up on the side of the pitch. It's a hard place to cover. If I put anything on it will obstruct my vision. After the game it was swollen and sore. I couldn't really see out of it because of the swelling. It should be fine for Saturday but I need look after it and make sure I don't open it up again. Hopefully it'll be okay for the game at the weekend.'

If we are to get anything out of the fixture at Anfield, I suspect we`ll need Hughes and Hangeland to both be on top of their form, playing without one or the other would make things extremely difficult.

If Hughes is out - we'll struggle badly!

I'm not sure how Hodgson would reshuffle the defence - anyone got any ideas? Baird anyone?
