Faye out for months

Amdy Faye damaged knee ligaments last month and a scan has revealed that it will take at least six weeks for the midfielder to be fit to return to action.

And when he does, it will most probably be at the African Nations Cup, where he will be representing Senegal.

Just to make things worse, Nigel Quashie's booking for a foul on Eric Djemba-Djemba in the defeat to Manchester United means that he will miss the clash with Fulham at Loftus Road later in the month.
