Doble, who enjoyed half an hour off the bench in last Friday's 2-2 draw at Bury, sustained the injury during training and was duly left out of Town's match-day 18 for the 2-2 Boxing Day draw at Notts County.

Manager Graham Turner told the club's official website: "He's broken a bone in his hand and I'm told it's a spiral fracture which is complicated.

"He was due to have it put in plaster and he could be out for somewhere between three and six weeks.

"It depends what sort of plaster cast they put on it. Some players play with a light one and so we'll have to see how that works out."

Doble, a Wales Under-21 international, has made four substitute appearances for Shrewsbury this season.

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
