Pat Phelan looks set to get his comeuppance in an upcoming episode of Coronation Street when he's attacked outside the builders' yard and left for dead by a vengeful Andy Carver.

As viewers already know, Andy suspects the unscrupulous Phelan of being involved in Michael's tragic death. And events look set to come to a head on Thursday 15 December when Andy has his theory confirmed and sneaks up on Phelan, hitting him over the head with a brick and leaving him for dead.

Now, even though some Corrie fans may have sympathy for Andy, what happens next could make them see him in a different light. As Phelan lies unconscious in a hospital bed, Andy overhears Tim telling Sally that he saw Kevin, clearly wound up, heading for the yard at the time of the attack.

Anna worries that Kevin could become prime suspect, especially seeing as there's been new animosity thanks to some poison-pen letters that Pat had accused Anna of sending. And when Andy is quizzed by the police, he wastes no time in deflecting the blame onto Kev!

By Friday 16 December, the police are calling at the garage to interrogate Kevin, who admits that he hates Phelan's guts, but didn't try to kill him. Andy's nerves, though, remain in shreds as he waits for word on Phelan's condition. Will Pat make a recovery is the police probe set to become a murder investigation?
