Leeds United Football Club - Deane Set For Scan

Deane Set For Scan

Related Links Brian DeaneUnited striker Brian Deane will go for a scan on his shoulder today amidst fears that the striker may be out for up to a month.

Deane was forced to come off against Plymouth Argyle at half-time after damaging his shoulder minutes before the break with and is a major concern for boss Kevin Blackwell with the fear being that he dislocated it.

"We had to take Deano off at half-time and it now looks as if we could be missing him for a few weeks," said Blackwell.

"We'll have to x-ray it today before we know how just bad it is.

Deane has been in superb form in recent games, scoring in the win over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light and generally putting in spritely performances that defy his age.

Blackwell knows he will have to face up to Deano's loss if his worst fears are confirmed.

"Deano's been terrific for me, I think people forget that he's 36 going on 37 because he's kept himself in great shape.

"People questioned it when I brought him back to the club, but I had a specific role in mind and I had wanted to bring in another striker but things didn't happen that way. So he's had to step in and do more than both of us probably expected and he's given us great service this season."
