Kevin: Glad Mattie Is Ok

Kevin Horlock, who replaced Matthew Etherington at the weekend, is delighted that his injury is not as bad as it could have been.

Matthew, put out of action by a challenge from Stephen Wright, has bruising to the tibia of the right leg - but it could have been so much worse.

"Mattie is a massive player for us and to lose him so early in the game was a big disappointment," says Kevin, who came on at centre midfield with Nigel Reo-Coker switching to the left vacated by Matthew.

"Luckily the injury is not as bad as first thought so we wish him a speedy recovery.

"It was nice to get a run-out but I would have liked it in better circumstances.

"It has been a while since I was involved in a league match so it was nice in that sense but I am glad Mattie is okay."
