West Ham's Bowyer: Dyer was slashed

West Ham midfielder Lee Bowyer is upset with the way teammate Kieron Dyer broke his leg against Bristol Rovers.

"It was a nightmare," he recalled to whufc.com. "I was standing right there. Kieron came straight towards me and I thought he was going to pass me the ball because he took a touch and it came my way.

"But the fella went in after and it looked like a slash to me. I said that to the referee. I heard a crack but I was hoping it was just his shin pad.

"Obviously it wasn't and it's a big loss for us. We're just not having much luck at the moment with Julien and his Achilles and Kieron being another new signing with his leg, both on the right side.

"I've played with him before so I know how he plays and I thought he did well against Birmingham and again on Saturday against Wigan. Hopefully he gets better sooner rather than later."
