Striker set to for long spell on the sidelines ...
R'S FRONT-MAN Andy Johnson is set for a prolonged period on the sidelines after scans revealed the 31 year-old suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the goalless draw against Chelsea on Saturday.
Johnson was forced from the fray in the 33rd minute against Roberto di Matteo's men, and is now likely to be sidelined for the majority of the 2012/13 season.
Fabio da Silva and Anton Ferdinand each suffered hamstring injuries in the draw versus the Blues and look set for a minimum two weeks out respectively.
