Blackpool have revealed forward Tom Barkhuizen will be out for six weeks after fracturing his collarbone.

The 21-year-old sustained the injury just over an hour in to the Seasiders' loss to Middlesbrough on Saturday, which was the Sky Bet Championship club's eighth defeat in the last nine games.

Barkhuizen went to hospital straight after and it has been now confirmed he will miss at least the next month for a squad which is already stretched to the limit.

A tweet on Blackpool's official Twitter account read: "Tom Barkhuizen will have surgery on a fractured and dislocated collarbone on Thursday. Expected to be out of action for six weeks."
