Semedo sidelined for up to two months

Jose Semedo could be out of action for two months after being stretchered off against Wigan last night.

Semedo fell awkwardly as he went to make a tackle and X-rays show the midfielder has suffered a fractured fibula and some ligament damage.

Head physiotherapist Paul Smith said: “Jose will see the surgeon in London on Friday and we expect him to be out for six to eight weeks.”
