Fulham: Niemi leaves hospital.

Fulham: Niemi leaves hospital.

Fulham stopper Antti Niemi was taken to a hospital with a neck injury after falling onto his head during Monday's 0-0 draw with Watford.

The incident happened nine minutes into the second half at Craven Cottage. Challenging for the ball with Liam Rosenior and Watford's Darius Henderson, Niemi landed on his head as he dropped to the turf.

The game was held up for nine minutes as Niemi was placed in the recovery position and then carried from the field.

'He's OK,' Fulham manager Chris Coleman said. 'He's gone off to hospital for some X-rays. It didn't look very good when we saw it. It could have been a lot worse. He's got a bit of damage to the neck but he says he has feeling everywhere else in his body, so we don't think it will be too bad.'

Fulham later issued a statement saying: 'He was reviewed by the doctors there and was cleared of any spinal cord or spinal column injury. Therefore, the injury sustained is believed to be related to the soft tissue (the ligaments and muscles).'

Fulham manager Chris Coleman earlier told Sky Sports: 'It's a good job he's as agile and as flexible as he is, it could have been a lot worse.'

Niemi, 34, joined the Fulham a year ago from Southampton

Another *****in' injury. What the ***** is the matter with us at the moment, injury wise, we have more injured players, then fit ones. And to make it all worse, we drew with Chelscum, and then drew with bottom-of-the-league WATFORD. I can't believe the way we are playing at the moment.

It certainly looked bad on television last night. Hopefully he'll be back soon.
