PREMIER - Brentford loses keeper for four months due to knee injury
With a knee injury, Brentford goalkeeper David Raya will be out for at least four months.
In a collision with Ayoze Perez in the closing minutes of Tuesday's 2-1 loss to Leicester City, the Spaniard suffered ligament injury to his left knee.
"David has sadly experienced an injury to the Posterior Cruciate Ligament in his left knee," said Neil Greig, the club's medical director.
"The issue will require a prolonged period of time to heal and for David to then regain function and strength around the joint.
"Positively, this type of injury usually heals well without the need for surgery. David has already begun using a brace specifically designed to aid this process.
"We anticipate the recovery period for an injury like this to be somewhere between four and five months, which will enable David to be back to his previous high levels well before the end of the season."
