Stone set for hernia op

Leeds United midfielder Steve Stone has been booked in to have a hernia operation next month.
The former Nottingham Forest, Portsmouth and Aston Villa star has endured an injury-ravaged time at Elland Road since joining the club last summer.
United manager Kevin Blackwell told the club's official website: "We'll get Steve in at the start of October for the operation.
"He can play because it's not dilated, but he does need the operation and it's a case of injury management.
"We didn't want both Steve and Shaun Derry out at the same time and, hopefully, Shaun will be back by the time Steve goes in."
