Roberts out

Wednesday 27 February 2002

Fulham's FA Cup 1/4 final opponents WBA received bad news this morning after it was confirmed that star striker Jason Roberts has broken his foot for a third time in less than a year.

Reports from the midlands suggest Roberts season is definately over after X-rays confirmed the Baggies worst fears.

The striker has been in fantastic form for promotion chasing West Brom and the news will come as a massive blow to them ahead of their Cup clash with Fulham.

Roberts broke his foot at Cheltenham Town in a pre-season friendly in July, before suffering from the same injury his come-back game against Manchester City at The Hawthorns in September.
