Bristol City manager Keith Millen fears midfielder Cole Skuse is at least another fortnight away from returning from a toe injury.
Skuse has not played for the Robins since the defeat by Nottingham Forest in late January and his fractured toe is taking longer to heal than expected.
Millen was hoping Skuse would return to training this week, but it could be next month before the 24-year-old is back in action.
"The specialists say the toe hasn't healed as fast as they would have expected and hoped," Millen told the club's official website.
"It is likely he will still be out for another two or three weeks, which is another injury blow for us."
Meanwhile, Millen is also monitoring Liam Fontaine's ankle injury after the defender was able to play the full 90 minutes of Monday's 3-1 defeat at Norwich City.
Millen added: "Liam got through the game at Norwich but we'll have to keep an eye on it because it looks like there's a problem there."
