ON-LOAN Bur­ton striker Ja­cob Blyth is un­likely to fea­ture in the sea­son run-in, manager Jimmy Floyd Has­sel­baink has re­vealed.

The 22-year-old, on loan from Le­ices­ter, was ini­tially set for six weeks on the side­lines af­ter pulling his quadri­ceps dur­ing a 3-1 win at Chel­tenham in Fe­bru­ary.

But for­mer Leeds striker Has­sel­baink has con­firmed Blyth may have played his last game for the Brew­ers.

He said: “He is not go­ing to make it for the re­main­der of the sea­son un­for­tu­nately.

“It is a mas­sive blow but as much as we would like to get him back, it is an op­por­tu­nity for some­body else to grasp it and flour­ish it.”
