Wednesday goalkeeper Nicky Weaver will be sidelined for three months with a knee injury.

The former Manchester City and Charlton Athletic goalkeeper travelled to America to see a specialist on his on-going knee problem and the results were not as bad as first feared.

There was speculation that the stopper may miss the rest of the campaign, and even that his career may be in doubt.

Manager Gary Megson told BBC Radio Sheffield: ‘It’s nowhere near as bad as it could have been, but he’ll be out around three months.’

Richard O’Donnell has taken his place in goal and it’s unclear whether Megson will stick with the 22-year-old or enter the loan market to bolster his goalkeeping options while Weaver is out.
