Stephen Dawson was taken off injury after 12 minutes due to an ankle injury.

Reds midfielder Stephen Dawson says he is expecting to be out for between six to eight weeks with an ankle injury.


The in-form hardman was stretchered off the pitch against Ipswich on Saturday after a clash in the first half.


He told the Chronicle: "I haven't broken my fibia which at first I feared but I have damaged the ligaments and it will be at least six weeks, possibly eight weeks. I'm absolutely devastated."


A full interview with Dawson will appear in this week's Chronicle.
