Martin O'Neill says Nicklas Bendtner injury worse than it seemed

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill has confirmed striker Nicklas Bendtner's facial injuries are worse than was first thought. The Denmark international suffered a broken nose when he was caught in the face by Swansea defender Angel Rangel's boot during Saturday's 2-0 Barclays Premier League victory over the Welsh side. However, O'Neill has revealed that the damage is more extensive and as a result, Bendtner is likely to miss several games, starting with Sunday's FA Cup fourth round clash with neighbours Middlesbrough.
