Stoke City boss, Mark Hughes, has revealed that Osaze Odemwingie will be out for some weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury in training.
The Nigerian forward will therefore miss
Stoke’s clash at Tottenham this weekend.
Hughes confirmed this on the club’s official website after the pre-match press conference Thursday.
“Unfortunately Peter has got a hamstring strain and is likely to miss the next couple of weeks,” Hughes said.
“It’s disappointing for him because he has worked tremendously hard throughout pre-season.”
The news will come as a blow to the Nigerian international who endured a frustrating 2014/15 campaign after suffering knee ligament damage in the 1-0 triumph over Manchester City last August.
He did however make a full recovery back from that to feature in the latter stages of last season, and built upon that during the Potters’ hectic pre-season schedule.
Odemwingie stepped off the bench against Liverpool in last Sunday’s 2015/16 curtain-raiser, but will take no part in Saturday’s trip to White Hart Lane.
