DyerNewcastle‘s comeback kid Kieron Dyer is injured again after maked a 30 minute comeback against Portsmouth in the Carling Cup on Wednesday night. Dyer’s notorious groins and hamstrings are still intact, but the midfielder is now facing at least two weeks on the sidelines after picking up an injury to his left eye.

Rumours that he was poked in the eye while trying to prise a sicknote from Darren Anderton‘s clammy fingers have not been confirmed. Magpies boss Glenn Roeder said: " Kieron took a knock to his left eye in Friday training in what can only be described as a freak accident."

Dyer had been out for six months before his fleeting comeback.
