Hangeland - Get Fit Soon

Hangeland - Get Fit Soon

Up at Anfield our defence looked, to put it mildly, shambolic.

With the back four deprived of the talents of Sascha Riether and Brede Hangeland, we were there for the taking. Liverpool`s incisive passing and dead-ball delivery, from set-pieces, left us floundering.

Now whilst we can plan for Riether`s comeback, with the full back still having two games of his three game ban to serve, the return of our defensive rock, Brede Hangeland, is a little uncertain.

The Norwegian is currently side-lined with a sciatic nerve problem and the inference in the press is that he could be side-lined for several more games, with Martin Jol quoted as having remarked,

"I don`t know how long he will be out for. It`s not easy with nerve problems."

With the current duo of Senderos and Amorebieta occupying the central defensive areas, I`m probably not alone in hoping that Hangeland can shake off his sciatic problem and pull the side out of the lethargy it is currently displaying.
