Injured Poom faces six months out

Mart Poom
Poom had been in excellent form for Watford

Watford goalkeeper Mart Poom will be out for up to six months after suffering a dislocated shoulder in the 2-2 draw against Reading.

Poom's injury is a major blow for the Championship club as the Estonian had been in fine form.

"The injury is serious, unfortunately. It's a six-month job I think," manager Aidy Boothroyd told Watford's website.

"He's had to have his shoulder pinned and for a goalkeeper, and a 36-year-old at that, it's not good at all."
