Cech still not ready for West Brom return

Marek Cech believes he is still two weeks away from resuming any form of training, reports the Birmingham Mail. The Albion left-back is recovering from three fractures to his foot, sustained during the Baggies' Carling Cup victory against Leyton Orient last month.

"My injury is getting better," he said.

"I am walking without any aid but I'm still not ready to jog. That will be another two weeks I think."

And Cech revealed the full extent of his disappointment.

"I dribbled the ball and as I pushed it in front of me the player came in from my right side and caught my foot,'' he said.

"He stepped on it and broke three bones in my foot.

"I was lying on the pitch and got abuse from the Leyton Orient fans who thought I was simulating. It was upsetting because I was badly hurt.

"At the time I was playing well, we'd beaten Sunderland and were heading for Liverpool so it was a disappointing time for me.

"I wanted to stay in the team longer than I was.

"I knew it was bad when I couldn't walk after I got off the coach back in Birmingham."
