The 21-year-old suffered the injury after coming on as a second-half substitute during the 1-0 defeat at Bradford on Saturday.

Brewers boss Gary Rowett suspected that Dyer had damaged ligaments but scans have now confirmed that the former Aston Villa trainee has a grade three tear, which will keep him out for up to six weeks.

Rowett confirmed: "Jack has a grade three tear, so it isn't as bad as we first feared, but he'll be out for around four to six weeks.

"It's a real shame for Jack but he's got to pick himself up and carry on.

"He's a good character and he'll bounce back and be raring to go when he's recovered."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
