The striker departed pointing to his right hamstring after 43 minutes in the goalless draw at the City Ground.
But coach Clive moved quickly to allay any fears of a serious problem. "Fredi's fine," he said. "It was a slight cramp in the hamstring and we'll assess it again this morning.
"We didn't want to take any chances and he made it clear that he was a little worried about it. But it was just a muscle cramp and we don't think it's a pull, so nothing too serious."
Clive Allen reports that Fredi Kanoute was taken off early as a precaution after feeling cramp in his hamstring in our reserve clash at Forest last night.
