Roberts landed awkwardly following a challenge from home captain Jonathan Douglas with just 15 minutes on the clock and had to be stretchered off at the County Ground.

The 26-year-old was immediately taken to hospital where X-rays confirmed the break before a cast was fitted and he travelled home on Saturday night.

He is due to visit a specialist on Tuesday where a clearer picture of the length of time he faces on the sidelines may emerge and a recovery programme will be discussed.

Big blow

Terriers boss Lee Clark admits it is a setback to lose one of his key men for such an extended period of time.

Clark told the club's official website: "It's a clean break quite high up the arm and we've been told Gary is out for a minimum of six weeks.

"He was able to come back home by car on Saturday night, but he will have to see a specialist to determine what type of treatment is needed.

"It's a big blow for him and the club, because Gary has been playing well on a consistent basis and did well in the short time he was on the pitch on Saturday."
