Manager Simon Grayson has confirmed that Nathan Delfouneso will miss the club’s next few matches with a fresh hamstring injury.
The setback for the forward, who had started the season in fine form, is completely unrelated to the hamstring problem he returned from against Coventry City last weekend.
“You’ve got to feel sorry for the lad because he’s been very unlucky. It’s not the same injury that he picked up at Gillingham, it’s in a different area,” Grayson revealed. “He was stretched off enough and good. He turned in a certain direction and it just meant that he felt his hamstring and is going to be ruled out for a couple of weeks now.”
