Birmingham City midfielder Jonathan Spector will visit a specialist to determine whether he needs surgery on his fractured right cheekbone.

Spector, who recently signed a new two-year contract, suffered the injury when colliding with an opponent's knee in a pre-season friendly against MK Dons.

The 27-year-old now faces a scan to see whether he will miss the start of the new Championship season.

"It was absolutely ridiculous," boss Lee Clark told the club website.external-link

"It was so innocuous, it was 10 seconds from the end of the game as well, which is the frustrating thing."
