Nottingham Forest have confirmed that defender Julian Bennett is set to be sidelined for another month.
The 23-year-old was injured against Lincoln last month but the problem with his hamstring is worse than first feared.
Forest now expect the left-back to be sidelined until the New Year.
"It looks as though Julian will be out for a month from now. The scan showed a big tear," said Forest boss Colin Calderwood.
"The physios will treat the symptoms because it can be slightly deceptive but it looks as though he will be missing until January."
