Winston Reid could be out for several weeks after dislocating a shoulder against Bristol City last night during the 0 – 0 draw.
The New Zealand international, who is now becoming a regular fixture in Sam Allardyce’s first team fell awkwardly after defending a cross in the first few minutes of the game.
After receiving some treatment on the pitch he was substituted and left the field of play holding his left arm.
Sam Allardyce confirmed the bad news. “He’s been to hospital and the dislocated shoulder has been put back into place,” he said – before revealing that he would be using the forthcoming two-week international break to find fresh blood.
“It will be another search in the loan market very, very quickly to see if we can find a quality player who will help us with the numbers at the moment.”
Lets hope he gets back playing soon as I thought he was starting to build a good understanding and partnership with James Tompkins.
