Bombers star hospitalised with leg infection


//

Essendon could be without star midfielder David Zaharakis for its Good Friday clash against North Melbourne after he was hospitalised with an infection in his leg.

Zaharakis was hospitalised on Tuesday for treatment on a cut on his knee that he suffered during the Bombers' 47-point win over the Brisbane Lions at the MCG.

Despite suffering the cut, the 29-year-old was bandaged up and was able to run out the remainder of the match, but saw the laceration become infected in the following days.

According to a Herald Sun report, Zaharakis was advised to go to hospital for antibiotics to counter the infection in his leg and as a result he has been away from the club.

While the Bombers are understood to be monitoring the situation closely, the club is expecting Zaharakis to make a full recovery in time for Friday's clash.

However, regardless of whether Zaharakis is able to play or not, the injury comes at an inopportune time for the midfielder who has seen a resurgence in form over the past two weeks.

Zaharakis was among Essendon's best in Round 4, with 31 disposals against the Lions and is averaging 26 disposals per game so far this season, while operating at 75 percent disposal efficiency.

The injury also comes at a time where the Bombers are slowly getting back to full fitness, with star forward Joe Daniher also a chance to return against the Kangaroos.
