Boss Confirms Hibbert Knock

Boss Confirms Hibbert Knock

Manager David Moyes has revealed defender Tony Hibbert was withdrawn during the 3-1 win over Carlisle United because of a groin problem.

The right back was replaced by youngster Seamus Coleman with 10 minutes remaining as the Blues produced a late show to ensure their place in the FA Cup fourth round.

> Boss Praises Young Duo

The extent of Hibbert's injury is so far unknown but the defender is expected to be assessed on Monday.

"Seamus had to come on because Tony Hibbert had a groin strain," said Moyes.

The Blues boss is already short on numbers in defence with Sylvain Distin (hamstring), Phil Jagielka (knee) and Joseph Yobo (African Cup of Nations) all unavailable.

Mick EganWell said Mark Lynch, I think many are being very unfair to Hibbo, as he has put in plenty of good performances lately, especially when filling in at centre back! The one thing u all seem to forget, is that Coleman had fresh legs agianst a team who were playing a much quicker pace than they would be used to!!! We can all see Coleman is a gr8 prospect, but u boo boys need to take your blinkers off where Hibbo and Ossie are concerned instead of constantly making them scapegoats!!

Derek ChandleyGive Coleman his chance against the gunners. Offers so much more going forward.

david harmanHow can Mark Heath call Hibbert`s injury a blessing we need every player, we have some tough game`s ahead, even without injury I think Coleman and one or two of the other youngster`s would get their chance due to the player shortage at the moment.

david hodgsonit's the one position at the moment that we have a natural FIT replacement for the injured player. I feel for hibbo a bit because over the last few games he has certainly improved whether that had anything to do with him looking over his shoulder?

Mark LynchMark Heath. Hibbert was performing up until that point, I am all for Coleman coming on and having his chance, and am just as excited by his potential, but there where plenty of other options for Coleman to have came on ie subbed him for Neil or Heitinga, (who along with Billy where all struggling yesterday) pushed him to RB and Hibbert to CB, Hibbert does his job without complaint, and as he as proved recently he is invaluable as he can fill in at CB, cut him some slack......We are having what is probably one of the worst injuries records to date, and you come out with BLESSING IN DISGUISE, are you for real,

John HauNo matter how much I want to see Coleman plays for us, I would never wish for one of our player get injured, as we are short on number in the defence, but what's happen, happened? So, we just have to move on and wish Hibbert a quick recovery, just don't repeat what we did with Yobo and Distin. Let's see what Coleman really made off, as Arsenal and Man City should prove good test for the lad.

david harmanWith Hibbert injured we will need to call on the youngster`s more and more their spirit and belief in their abilitie`s and the club will help them keep us on course through this rough patch. KEEP THE FAITH.

Alec WalkerAfter Colemns short stint against Spurs which provided our equaliser I am surprised that he wasn't in the next line up. He has proved he is good enough as we saw today.If they are good enough then they are old enough to play a full match. Remember Rooney!!!
