Huddersfield striker Lee Novak has been ruled out for six weeks with a hamstring injury.
Novak picked up the problem in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Plymouth, forcing him to limp off in the 64th minute and scans have now revealed that the 22-year-old has suffered a grade-two tear.
Town boss Lee Clark told the Huddersfield Examiner: "It's not as bad as it might have been, but it's still desperately disappointing."
He added: "Lee will be on crutches for three or four days, but he can do a bit of work in the pool and with weights.
"He's got a positive attitude and he'll work very hard to get back into the frame as soon as possible."
