Martin Jol reported that Aaron Lennon missed Saturday's clash at Manchester United with a knee injury sustained in training on Friday.

The jet-heeled winger wasnt part of the squad that suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat in the Premiership at Old Trafford. Instead, Hossam Ghaly made his debut and did well in Aarons regular spot on the right of midfield.

Boss Martin said: "Aaron picked up an injury in training so we couldnt consider him for selection.

"Maybe he needs an operation but maybe well give him another weeks rest because its only a small tear in his cartilage so hopefully it will be okay. Well make an assessment and well know for sure.

"Its a disappointment but we played without him in pre-season and others did well so Im confident we can play with the other players and get the results as well."
