John Carew and Anthony Reveillere picked up injuries in Lyon's win over Ajaccio.Lyon paid a heavy price for their extra time victory over Ajaccio in the Coupe de France, with John Carew and Anthony Reveillere both picking up injuries.
Striker Carew has been an integral part of Lyon's success this season, but is facing a spell on the sidelines after hurting his foot midway through the 2-1 victory on Wednesday.
He will now undergo scans to determine the extent of the problem, with club bosses hoping that he will be able to recover in time for the UEFA Champions League clash against PSV Eindhoven on February 21.
Right back Reveillere, who had just returned from injury, had to be substituted in the first half after pulling up with a thigh strain.
The latest setback will pose many problems for coach Gerard Houllier, who has had defensive trio Eric Abidal, Jeremy Berthod and Claudio Cacapa all struggling for fitness in recent weeks.
