IAN Holloway has not ruled out the possibility of Lee Martin playing against Middlesbrough after the winger came off with an injury at Bournemouth.

The Lions' fears that Martin broke a toe at Dean Court have proved unfounded and he will be monitored on a daily basis ahead of Saturday's showdown at The Den.

Holloway said: "Lee will be OK. His injury isn't as bad as we thought it might be but we won't know until Friday whether he'll be fit.



"We will assess him throughout the week. He's lucky he didn't break his toe because their bloke stamped all over his foot.

"I think he's playing the best football of his career this season."

    "I think he's playing the best football of his career this season." HAHA

    He has been dreadful these last 5 or 6 games, at the minute he can't put a good ball in often enough and is too scared to take players on! Watch him when he next plays as whenever I say this people disagree but it's true! End of last season and the start of the season he was immense and full of confidence but now looks an average player. It scares me that he is our 'best winger'.

    I've been every game this season so feel I can give a fair opinion! 😉

        @aeojt: Ollie seems to equate playing well with running around a lot. He may be committing more tackles and covering more yardage but he isn't doing what a good winger should do ie He is not giving us width and getting round the back of the defence and putting the ball in the dangerous areas he is not scoring and he doesn't really take people on but yes he does run round a lot.

    His crossing and corners at Charlton were poor, his all round chasing and team play has definitely improved though. He always tracks back and puts tackles in, but is lacking quality on his final pass/cross.

        @Jim28: Martin has created lots of our goals from crosses and passes ..... Henry was a fat out of puff tart.

          @Lincolnshire Lion: I agree and that makes it even more obvious now that his crossing appears to be of lower quality. He set high standards and to my mind is not currently living put to them. Don't get me wrong, I think he's quality and a key player for is, but he is not currently delivering (pardon the pun)

      @DELBOY64: read the posts above.hard to dissagree.but you got to ask who has asked him to play more like a ball winner then a winger...same goes for our striker who plays out wide.then there's fred who was great at the tail end od the season..against the saints he was cack but excels in the U21's..in short olly play wingers as wingers and strikers as strikers

        jim you are right martin is playing to order's,when after going 2 or 3 goals down and we started to play more direct, martin has left defender's for dead and has been instrumental in getting us back into the game,i cannot understand some of the poster's that are knocking him so much,i know we all see a match differently ,but if ollie play's to martin's strength's,ie through ball's and ball's over the top for him to run onto we will see a much better player,so to you you guy's knocking him,he is not useless he is doing the job his manager is telling him to do.

    I think it's a case of the manager trying to build up a players confidence.
    Nothing wrong with that.

      I totally agree with you there wall.also i think he is playing to order's and doing it well,and he would be even better if played as a more direct winger.

        @jim1222: Jim if we want someone to run around a lot and tackle then Jimmy is your man. I am only criticising Martin on his effect as a winger not a midfielder.Even Feeney is scoring and creating. If he is playing to orders then Ollie clearly has no place for wingers in this side yet nearly everyone we play has been roasting us with theirs.

    In other news, Matt Etherington retired today because of a persistent back injury. thank f*** we didn't sign him ! Despite all the experts on here saying we should, just proves who really knows the score when it comes to these players, HOLLOWAY.

        @Jim28:
        It's ok letting them in to trial, you might manage to find a bargain. My point was that a lot of people were saying at the time we should of signed him, without knowing what holloway probably did know, that he was on his last legs!

        @glyngo: I very much doubt it, they've never been able to spot the others.
