Yeovil Town will be without captain Omar Sowunmi after the giant defender was ruled out with a serious ankle injury.
The Glovers are 15th in the table, but had a solid start to the season which has begun to disappear into the distance. Sowunmi is one of the key performers, but he looks set to be out until mid-December at the earliest and is unlikely to be fully match fit until 2019.
He has been ruled out for 10-12 weeks with an ankle ligament injury he picked up against MK Dons at the end of last month.
The 22-year old has been a bed rock of the Glovers defence and will be a huge loss for them.
He started out as a trainee at Ipswich and enjoyed loan spells with Braintree and Lowestoft before joining Yeovil. He’s since racked up 60 league appearances for the Huish Park outfit and forged a reputation as a defender with an exciting future.
This is really bad news for Yeovil, he’s been a key part of their side this season and his absence will hit them hard.
Their early-season promise has begun to fade and it may be that they need to look at free agents in order to cover the gap left at the back.
