KENNY Jackett has confirmed Karleigh Osborne's hamstring injury is not serious and says the centre-back could be back playing in just over two weeks.

Osborne was forced off 17 minutes into the Lions' 2-0 win over South London rivals Charlton last weekend but scans have shown the 25-year-old only suffered a minor grade one strain.

Jackett is hopeful that Osborne will not miss too many matches and believes the timing of the two-week international break lessens the impact of his absence on the squad.



"It's handy for Osborne really because the physio's first impressions are that he may have a chance of playing against Birmingham on April 6," Jackett told NewsAtDen.

"If he doesn't make that game, we play Sheffield Wednesday on the following Tuesday so it doesn't look too bad. He has a period of time to recover."
