Walker raps West Ham over Dyer claims

Bristol Rovers striker Richard Walker is unhappy with the way West Ham have blamed teammate Joe Jacobson for Kieron Dyer's broken-leg injury.

He said: "I'm sure he will write him a letter or give him a phone call to wish him all the best and once everyone has seen it on telly they will know it was a complete accident.

"West Ham are trying to make more of it than it is but there was definitely no intent there from what I saw.

"It was an accidental clash. Obviously it was a bad injury for him and he must be the unluckiest man in football but it is one of those things that happen all the time.

"They just crossed paths and it was a free-kick incident. A couple of the lads said they heard a crack and obviously it wasn't looking good but there was no intent there at all."
