Newcastle United goalkeeper Martin Dubravka will be sidelined for several weeks after suffering a knee ligament injury.

Dubravka picked up the injury during Newcastle’s 1-0 English Premier League victory over Southampton on Saturday.

The club said in a statement: “Goalkeeper Martin Dubravka suffered a knee injury in Saturday’s Premier League victory at Southampton.

“The Slovakian international suffered an injury just before the hour-long match at St Mary’s but he decided to continue playing, winning his ninth clean sheet this season when Steve Bruce’s team won three valuable points.

“He was then assessed on Monday and has now been ruled out for at least the rest of this month.”
