'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Extent of Bendtner injury confirmed

On-loan Arsenal forward Nicklas Bendtner will be out 'for a while' according to Martin O'Neill following a facial injury picked up against Swansea City.

The big Dane left the field after just 12 minutes after a collision between his face and the boot of Swans defender, Angel Rangel.

Twenty-four year-old Bendtner suffered multiple facial injuries in the clash, including a broken nose.

Bendtner will now miss Saturday's clash with Middlesbrough as well as the Premier League games against Norwich and Stoke.

Speaking to The Sunderland Echo, Martin O'Neill explained:

"He`s got a bit more than a broken nose.

"It`s difficult to put a timescale on it, but it`s going to be lengthy.

"But he`s going to be out for a number of weeks now which is definitely a blow to us.

"He has a few cracks and we just have to bide our time with that.'

Whilst the news is a blow for Bendtner, it couldn't come at a better time for Frazier Campbell who played and started for the reserves against Bolton earlier in the week.

Campbell should be fit enough for a place on the bench in the near future.
