A fractured finger is likely to rule Leeds United goalkeeper Andy Lonergan out of action until December.

Leeds United goalkeeper Andy Lonergan has been ruled out of action until December with a fractured finger.

The 27-year-old sustained the injury during Leeds's 3-0 victory over Doncaster Rovers last Friday.

"It could be about six weeks," manager Simon Grayson told the club's official website.

"He's had an operation on his finger. Hopefully he'll be back quickly, but I think that's the time span we're looking at."

Paul Rachubka is expected to deputise during Lonergan's absence.
