The 29-year old midfielder has suffered a recurring hernia problem and may have to have another operation after undergoing surgery earlier this season.

Sidwell has managed 14 league appearances so far this campaign but is unlikely to be available until around mid-March according to manager Martin Jol.

"We had an injury to Steve Sidwell and he will be out for a long time for four, five or six weeks," he said.
