Goalkeeper loses teeth in League Two game

A League Two goalkeeper put the cliché of putting his body on the line to another level after losing teeth in a goalmouth scramble.

Forest Green Rovers’ James Montgomery received a boot to the face during his side’s 1-1 draw against Macclesfield Town.

The 24-year-old later tweeted a picture of his face from the treatment room before heading to hospital, joking that he would be setting up a fundraising page to pay for his replacement teeth.

Forest Green manager Mark Cooper said after the game: "That'll interfere with his good looks for a while.

"He's got a large facial wound, an horrendous cut on his lip and he's missing a few teeth.

"He'll need some work done and is off to hospital to get some treatment, so we'll see how he goes in terms of how long he'll be out of action."

Montgomery was forced off on 61 minutes with the injury, making way for Reading loanee Lewis Ward who now looks set for an extended spell as first choice.
