Dyer straights

Filed: Tuesday, 28th August 2007

Kieron Dyer will be out until the New Year at least after breaking a leg in tonight's Carling Cup clash against Bristol Rovers.

Alan Curbishley's newest recruit became the latest player to suffer a serious injury in the early stages of tonight's clash, which the Hammers lead 1-0 at the time of writing.

An innocuous-looking challenge left Dyer writhing in agony before the 7m man was carried off the pitch with his leg in a brace. It was later confirmed that he had broken his leg in two places, meaning at least four months out of action.

We'll have more for you from tonight's game at the final whistle.
