Pato & Beast- An Injury Update

Pato & Beast- An Injury Update

Martin Paterson and Brian Jensen were both stretchered off in last night's 3-2 Carling Cup defeat to Barnsley.

Paterson will be out of action for an unspecified time after it was decided he needed surgery for a knee injury today to repair a tweaked cartilage.

Jensen though only suffered a dead leg and gaffer, Owen Coyle announced on the Official Burnley FC Website:

'Brian could be fit for the weekend'

Speaking about the injury to Pato he said:

'Martin tweaked a cartilage and will have surgery, at which point we'll know further how long he will be sidelined.'

The news is therefore mixed, we would certainly be in a stronger position if Jensen was available for the Spurs game at White Hart Lane this Saturday.

Losing Paterson would be a blow but not a disaster with loan striker, David Nugent chomping at the bit to make a start following his brace from the bench against Sunderland last Saturday. Steven Fletcher, Steve Thompson and Jay Rodriguez would also be available for a role up front.

Let's hope though that the injury to Paterson won't keep him sidelined for too long. That's all we need after losing Chris McCann for 2-3 months following his medial ligament injury against the Black Cats.

Looks like Pato will be out for at least a bit. What do folk think? In a way although I wouldn't have wished the injury on him, I felt he was underachieving this season and badly needed a goal. Ideal chance for Nugent to start now plus a chance for Thommo/Jay Rod to maybe see more action via the bench.

Hope Pato has a quick recovery, I agree with Phil maybe he was underachieving however work rate wise couldn't ask anymore of him. I keep looking for updates on the Beast everything crossed it was a dead leg and he will be between them sticks come Saturday

We still have 4 strikers and as such it is not a time to panic, I maybe in a minority of 1 but I am prepared to see Penny in goal, OC bought him for a reason and whilst the Beast is my number one, Penny has to be given a chance if Jenson is sidelined and as yet about 3 games does not constitute a chance again imo.

Paterson is having the operation tonight so we could find out pretty soon as to how long he maybe out! this may sound harsh but I was more concerned with the Jensen injury and having no real cover where as with Paterson we still have options, hopefully he won't be out for too long and comes back chomping at the bit!

Like you 8clarets8 I was more concerned with the Jensen injury but pato is important to the team too we will be ok as long as we do not have any more strikers injured. Fletcher like pato needs a premiership goal.

Owen was the guest before the United-Wolves game tonight and seemed to say he was hopeful Pato might only be 4 weeks ( unless I misheard). For Saturday, I would probably play Fletch up top and bring Eagles in - This would leave Nuge for the last 30 mins to gain fitness. Alternatively, we could play Fernando and move Robbie over. I just have a good feeling about Eagles after the way he played in the first half there last season.
