Dyer Distraught

The England international was stretchered off after minutes of last night's Carling Cup game against Bristol Rovers after going down following an awkward challenge by a Rovers player.

Alan Curbishley was obviously despondent this morning. He told the official site, "We think that Kieron Dyer's broken his leg and we're so devastated for him,

"Obviously, we're delighted that we got through to the next stage of the competition but the game was irrelevant after Kieron's injury. I'm really down because he was looking sharp out there, playing in his favourite position in the middle of the park.

"Everyone in the dressing room's really flat but we've just got to get over this. After all, that's the reason why we've got a squad and now we've got to push on and look forward to Saturday's game at Reading."

As of yet there is no news as to when Dyer could return although many will feel his season is now over before it's even began.
