The Welshman is expected to miss the next two to three weeks as he completes his recovery.

The 24-year-old has started just three Championship matches for Derek McInnes' side so far this season, and will have to wait until next month to force his way back into the side.

The Robins currently sit 23rd in the table, and have the second worst defensive record in the division, having failed to keep a clean sheet this term.

McInnes said: "It's something that has been bothering Lewin and we had to get it sorted.

"Hopefully the surgery is okay and he should be back with us in a fortnight or just a little longer."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
