Play in front wheel and disc?

Hi, new to the forum as I've just got my punto last weekend

While I had the car jacked up there was a lot of play in the N/S front wheel and disc, I'm pretty sure this is a wheel bearing but can anyone confirm this?

Another problem I have is I somtimes get the fuel injection light up on the dash when this happens theres not change to the way the car drives and no lose of power not sure why the light goes on and off?

Cheers

Wheel bearing if play at 6-12 and 3-9. You can generally feel harshness, too. Other (scary!) possibility is a loose hub nut. If Mk2 punto, get the codes read -- it's OBD2 compliant, so should be doable anywhere.

Yeah hub bolt is tight... would it be safe to drive it to work this week until I can get it sorted?

Well, safe(ish). I'd not do it knowingly. but people (even PCC editors!) seem to get away with it.
