Huddersfield Town striker Gary Taylor-Fletcher is likely to be sidelined for the next six weeks with a knee injury.

The 25-year-old, who has been deployed on the wing by manager Peter Jackson this season, has already netted eight times this term.

However, he will now miss a large chunk of action after damaging his medial knee ligaments in the 1-0 win over Bradford at the weekend.

"Obviously it's a big blow for us to lose Fletch," Jackson told the club's official website.

"He is not only our leading scorer, but is one of the highest scorers in the league at the moment and we will miss his goals and his all-round play."
