Grant content to make late call

Published Add your comment

Chelsea manager Avram Grant will wait until the last possible moment before deciding whether Frank Lampard and Petr Cech will fly to Istanbul for Wednesday´s Champions League showdown with Fenerbahce.

Lampard missed Sunday´s 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough because of sickness, although he was able to watch the match at Stamford Bridge from the stands, while goalkeeper Cech has been sidelined by an ankle injury.

Grant said: "Lampard was very sick and he didn´t even come to (the training ground at) Cobham. If he can be available, we will take him on the plane and we will see about Petr Cech at the same time."
