Martin Jol reports that Michael Dawson suffered mild concussion against Portsmouth on Sunday while Pascal Chimbonda faces a week out with a calf injury.Central defender Michael suffered a nasty clash of heads with team-mate Tom Huddlestone defending a corner in the second half of our 2-1 Premiership victory at the Lane.

Our medical staff had to assist Michael off the pitch and he spent last night in hospital.

Martin said this morning. "We will monitor Michael for the next week, he has to be careful with his heading - the normal procedure - and by the end of the week he should be training with us again."

Pascal, meanwhile, suffered a calf strain in the first half and had to be substituted at half-time. "Pascal could be out for the next week at least," added Martin.

Thankfully, neither injury should impact on our next fixture - Aston Villa away on October 14.
