Leicester City hit by Schmeichel injury woe

first_img1 Kasper Schmeichel Leicester City’s Premier League survival hopes have been dented with the news Kasper Schmeichel faces up to six weeks out with a broken metatarsal.The goalkeeper has been in good form for the Foxes but must now spend time on the sidelines after injuring his foot.Manager Nigel Pearson said: “Unfortunately Kasper Schmeichel will be having an operation on a broken metatarsal. The optimistic view is 4-6 weeks out.”Ben Hamer is Schmeichel’s likely replacement and he will be looking to keep a clean sheet against Manchester City in Leicester’s next game, like he did in his first appearance for the club, which was a 1-0 win over Stoke.last_img
