PAVEL Pogrebnyak has played down injury fears after he limped out of Fulham's win against Stoke at the weekend.
The on-loan Stuttgart striker scored the opener on his debut but was then forced off with a foot problem.
However, the Russian is hopeful he will be back to full fitness in no time.
He told Sports-express.ru: "I twisted my foot a little bit. I wanted to go back but I understood that I can't be useful 100 per cent for my team.
"[In Germany] my same foot was injured but this time nothing serious happened. My foot swelled a bit but I'm sure it will be alright."
