Bikey Won't Get Ribbed In The Break

Bikey Won't Get Ribbed In The Break

There is some good news for Andre Bikey, Cameroon and Burnley FC today.

Bikey was injured in the first few minutes of the game at 'The Den' on Saturday against Millwall. He went down holding his ribs and after treatment carried on for a few minutes more before having to be substituted. The fear was he may have broken a rib and he was taken to a hospital in London last night for checks.

Scans though revealed he had no breaks and was simply suffering from bad bruising.

Bikey will now be able to join up with his Cameroon team mates in the International break in preparation for their African Cup of Nations qualifier to be played on home soil against DR Congo on Saturday 9th October.

The news also means he will be fit and ready to play in our next game against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday 16th October.

A little holiday will do Andre no harm, As long as he brings his brain back fully focused :-). A good start to the season Mr Bikey - Keep it coming on your return!

Have to say before he got injured he was veering towards Clown-tendency again like Hull,so let's hope he comes back fully focussed and ready to earn some more MoM awards!

Good to hear the news on BA bit strange to let him go on international duty but he'll get a bit of sun on his back.

If Carlisle loses appeal who do you think should partner Bikey in Shef U game? Duff or Cort?
