Gunners hoping for Cesc 'miracle'

11 March 2010 01:48
The Spain midfielder missed the midweek Champions League victory over Porto because of the hamstring problem which had seen him hobble out of the win against Burnley.

Wenger will not take any risks ahead of the trip to the KC Stadium for Saturday's late kick-off.

"His chances of playing are 0.5% - that means unless a miracle happens, he will not play. At the moment, Cesc is out of Saturday's game," said Wenger.

"We have a little doubt about [Tomas] Rosicky (groin), but we will check that tomorrow morning.

"Nobody else is back, but we will lose [Alex] Song, because he is suspended."

With William Gallas still sidelined because of a calf problem, Wenger will be hoping veteran Sol Campbell can shrug off cramp to face relegation-threatened Hull.

However, full-back Bacary Sagna is struggling with an ankle injury.

"Campbell looks better than expected today. Sagna has an ankle problem but we will assess that tomorrow," said Wenger.

"We will see how it develops, who is available, who I can play.

"We know we have 48 hours to prepare for this game and it is quite needed."
