Hughes to turn to Petrov?

"The plan was to give him 45 minutes," said Hughes. "He came through that and looked impressive. You forget what quality he can produce, and he looked in good nick.

He was blowing a bit, which is fairly obvious given how long he has been out. But he is an option for us."

It would be a huge gamble to field Petrov on Thursday night given the length of time he has been out - not to mention limited time back - but given the importance the game holds, could Petrov be worth a gamble at some stage in Hamburg?
