Lengthy lay-off for Elliot


Rob Elliot is facing at least six months on the sidelines, according to reports on Wednesday.

Elliot was stretched off with what was later described as a serious knee injury which he sustained as he attempted to block Miroslav Stoch's opener in the Republic of Ireland's 2-2 draw with Slovakia on Tuesday evening.

He was transferred to the Mater Hospital where he underwent a scan before returning to the team hotel in Castleknock.

The Newcastle goalkeeper flew to England on Wednesday and will have a second scan in order to determine the extent of the knee injury, although it has been reported that he will be out for at least six months.

Speaking after the match, Ireland manager Martin O'Neill admitted things did not look good for the 29-year-old.

"He's not great. He's got a serious knee injury. It's a real disappointment and obviously a dampener on the evening, particularly when he is getting his career together," O'Neill explained.

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez will be hoping the injury is not as bad as first feared with the club currently in the relegation zone.
