McEveley facing spell on sidelines

Published Add your comment

Derby defender Jay McEveley has had an operation on his fractured cheekbone and could be out for around eight weeks.

The full-back went under the knife on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after suffering the injury in the 2-0 Championship defeat at Middlesbrough.

Should the surgery prove successful, McEveley's absence could be reduced and he could play wearing a protective mask.

The 24-year-old joins an injury list at Pride Park that is already into double figures.
