Dyer in goggles plea to play in Watford clash

Newcastle United midfielder Kieron Dyer has pleaded to be allowed to play in Tuesday's Carling Cup clash with Watford wearing protective goggles.

The 27-year-old, who damaged an eye in a freak training ground accident just days after making his comeback from a six-month injury lay-off, was desperate to return to action at Vicarage Road.

However, medics advised against the plan, and manager Glenn Roeder decided not to risk him.

He said: 'Kieron is frustrated at missing out with his eye problem because he believes he is now fully fit after all his hamstring problems.

'He knows all about Edgar Davids playing in goggles at Tottenham Hotspur and pleaded with us to let him do the same at Watford.

'However, all the medical people said it was not practical and Kieron has accepted that.

'Because of the nature of the injury to his eye, we knew we had to go along with what the experts told us and that is what we have done.'

Dyer has been given the go-ahead to return to full training, but Saturday's vital Premiership trip to Manchester City could come too soon for him.
