Stoke City will be without Dominic Matteo for the remainder of the month after the experienced defender suffered a foot injury.
The former Scotland international had made six appearances for the Potters since arriving at the Britannia Stadium on a free transfer from Blackburn Rovers in January.
But Matteo will miss the next two weeks after damaging his foot in the 1-0 defeat by Barnsley on February 26.
"Dominic is a huge blow because he has had a thigh injury and now he has got this," Potters boss Tony Pulis told the club's official website.
"He has worked ever so hard and done an exceptional job for us."
