Aston Villa defender Luke Young is set to miss the next three matches with a torn hamstring.
The 31-year-old missed last Saturday's 0-0 draw with Chelsea after suffering the injury in training on Friday.
Scans show the problem is worse than feared and the former England full-back is likely to be out for two weeks.
He will miss Saturday's clash at Sunderland, Wednesday's Carling Cup tie with Burnley and the home match against Birmingham on 31 October.
At 7.70, Habib Beye is a bit expensive after getting 10pts in Villa's clean sheet draw against Chelsea. But he may be worth the investment over the next few weeks if you have money to spend on defenders, or are selling Bale to afford other purchases.
