Curbishley welcomes intervention

Alan Curbishley has been talking about the impending changes to his medical team.

Curbishley - who signed several of his former Charlton colleagues last year to effectively replace his predecessor Alan Pardew's 'sports science' team - admitted that assistance from the team of Roehampton University experts had been welcomed.

"Roehampton work with elite athletes and go across the board from diets up to rehab and training," said Curbishley, talking ahead of this weekend's visit of Derby County.

"We're going to take all the advice possible because we've got to do better."

Despite sanctioning the visit of the Roehampton team, Curbishley denied claims that his existing medical team were 'under-performing'.

"I think that on most of the injuries we've been unlucky," he added. "I can't forsee Faubert rupturing his achilles, I can't forsee Dyer breaking his leg or Collins his cruciate.

"But perhaps we've got to look at one or two of the other ones and see if we can improve. That's what we're doing it for."

As revealed earlier in the week during the fans' forum, the Roehampton team have been charged with completely overhauling the club's medical set-up.
