Luton Town boss Mick Harford is hopeful that defender Dan Potts will return to full fitness soon, per Luton Today.
The left-back picked up an injury in the club’s 4-0 win over Doncaster Rovers on Saturday.
Potts made his return from a groin injury against Rovers, having been out since October.
The full-back was on the pitch for a mere 23 minutes, however, sustaining a knee injury after jumping for an aerial challenge.
Goals from Pelly Ruddock, Danny Hylton, Kazenga LuaLua and Potts’ replacement, Luke Berry, ensured that Luton took all three points and manager Harford is unsure as to the extent of Potts’ injury.
He said: “He’s twisted his knee, we don’t know the extent of the injury, we’ll let it settle down over the weekend and probably have a scan on Monday.
“We don’t know and I’m just hoping he’s fit and well, as he’s a really, really important member of the squad Pottsy, he’s so reliable.”
Regardless of the prognosis, Potts is unlikely to come straight back into the team, such was the performance of Berry.
While normally a left-back, the former started the game in midfield and the latter excelled in the role after being introduced as a substitute.
He capped a fine display with an excellent goal and his coach even took the time to namecheck the goalscorer after the game.
Harford said: “JJ started the game very well, we’re disappointed that Pottsy got injured, but I’ve got to be honest with you, Luke Berry came on and he was magnificent.”
Potts could well recover quickly but he may have to sit on the bench for a little while longer.
