It was revealed on Wednesday that £5.5million signing Kieran Richardson could be sidelined for up to three months with a stress fracture of the back, and to compound matters, fellow winger Carlos Edwards will also be out of action for several more weeks after suffering a second hamstring tear.
Keane said: "We have had bad news on Kieran. He saw a specialist this week and he has a stress fracture of his back. We will have more news after he sees a surgeon. I would have thought that he will be out for two to three months."
