Newcastle United's young goalkeeper Tim Krul injured his knee in the warm-up before Tuesday's Carling Cup tie at Watford and could be out for the rest of the season.
The Dutch teenager made headlines last week for his amazing debut in Palermo where his man-of-the-match performance even had Toon goalkeeper Steven Harper snging his praises. But he had to be stretchered off of Vicarage Road and taken to hospital after suffering a knee injury.
Glenn Roeder: 'Tim got injured before the game in Italy last week, and we weren't sure then whether he had damaged his cartilage or just had a bang on his knee.
'We had it scanned, and that didn't show anything conclusive and he was able to play against Palermo and had the most wonderful debut. We were not 100 per cent certain that there wasn't some sort of cartilage damage, and sure enough it looks like that has surfaced tonight.
'He wasn't going to be involved in the game, but was doing a pre-match training session with Terry Gennoe when he dived and made a save. As he got up, the knee locked and he was in a lot of pain.
'He has been very well looked after by the medical staff and doctor at Watford and has been taken to hospital'.
