Dyer Injury Causes More Concern

Last updated : 03 November 2005 By Footy Mad - Editor
Just when we were delighted to see a sparkling return to action for Kieron Dyer on Sunday, his fourth attempted return to action didn't last long. It seems Dyer is certain to miss this weekend's game with Birmingham after he suffered a reaction to his hamstring injury on his return to first-team action.
A statement on the club's official website read: "Kieron Dyer has a medical problem which has contributed to his lack of fitness.
"Unfortunately, he has suffered another reaction following his appearance last weekend and will require further specialist attention to help him regain his full fitness."
The England international has suffered an ongoing problem with his hamstring which ruled him out at the end of last season.
A recurrence following the game with Manchester United at the start of the new campaign saw him sidelined since the end of August. The 26-year-old returned to action last weekend when he came on as a substitute during the 3-0 win at West Brom and set up the second goal for Michael Owen.
Obviously Dyer's problems are far more deep rooted than some experts thought, and we can only hope his FIFTH attempted return to action is better than the last four.
