Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard praised teammate Hilario after he stepped in for injured Carlo Cudicini during Tuesday night's victory over Fenerbahce.

"The goalkeeping situation hasn't helped but credit to Hilario," said Lampard. "He came in and made two saves in a minute. All credit to him because it is not easy being third choice keeper, not playing regularly and then having to come in and play big games.

"But it was good to see big Petr at the club because the cut he had two days ago was horrendous and now it looks much better. I don't know how long he will be out but hopefully it won't be too long."
