Keane: Fulop doubtful for Forest trip

ROY Keane revealed during his lunchtime press conference that keeper Marton Fulop is only 50-50 for this Saturday’s trip to home specialists Nottingham Forest.

Fulop missed Tuesday night’s 2-1 defeat at Watford, due to a back problem, which paved the way for Brian Murphy to make his first league appearance of the season.

And Murphy looks set to retain his place at the City Ground.

“Marton will be touch-and-go for Saturday,” explained Keane. “He hasn’t trained today, and he might try and do it a bit tomorrow, but I would say he is doubtful for the weekend.

“We won’t be taking any risks, especially with as good a keeper as Brian Murphy to come in. I thought he did OK at Watford.”

The Town boss has no other new injuries ahead of the weekend, although Darren O’Dea and Mark Kennedy will continue to miss out.
