John Boye suffers injury in FC Metz victory over Lens

French Ligue 2 side FC Metz are sweating over the fitness of key defender John Boye who suffered an injury in Tuesday's League Cup win over Lens.

The Ghana centre-back was replaced in the 15th minute as his side drew 1-1 with the home side in regulation.

But Metz ended up advancing to the next stage by winning 5-3 on penalties.

Boye remains a doubt to face Lens at the Stade Saint-Symphorien in a league match.

Head coach Frédéric Antonetti is pessimistic of having the Ghana international available.

"It's not a breakdown. It's not as bad as that, but for the meeting on Saturday, it will be complicated," he said.
