West Ham's Pantsil Stretchered Off

West Ham's injury curse doesn't seem to be letting up just yet. Yesterday Calum Davenport was carried off the pitch in a neck brace in his first on loan match at Watford. Now today John Pantsil has been carried off on a stretcher after complaining of dizziness at the end of Ghana's 2-1 victory over Guinea.

Pantsil has been sent to hospital for checks but assistant coach Renard and team-mate Laryea Kingston have said he felt much better shortly after the game.

"He had a knock to his jaw after a rough challenge during the first half," Renard told reporters.

Kingston added: "He felt weird at half-time, he could not remember anything from the first 45 minutes."

It does beggar belief that a player clearly suffering from concussion at half-time is sent out for the second half.

We can also add to the list Ashton and Etherington who were kept out of today's squad with a 'back' injury and 'an injury picked up in training' respectively.
