Paston sitting out Phoenix season with knee fracture

12:23 pm on 14 December 2010

The Wellington Phoenix goalie Mark Paston looks set for a long stint on the sidelines after a scan revealed a fracture in his knee.

Paston suffered the injury early in Saturday night's loss at Gold Coast.

He will see a specialist tomorrow to discuss his options.

Paston had the second half of last season ruined by a broken leg.

Australian Danny Vukovic will become the club's number one stopper.
