Millwall winger Tyler Burey will be out for at least 12 weeks after suffering a hamstring injury.
The 20-year-old was loaned out to Hartlepool United at the start of this season and had scored three goals and provided one assist for Pools before sustaining an injury in their 1-0 defeat against Tranmere Rovers.
The winger has been been nominated for the League Two Player of the Month award.
“Tyler had a scan on Monday which confirmed a grade three tear,” said Hartlepool United manager Dave Challinor.
“He then saw a specialist on Tuesday and he won’t require surgery but you’re looking at 12 weeks – if you’re being conservative.
Millwall will be safe with him being a young player and the first time he’s picked up an injury of this nature.
“Hopefully we’ll have him back by the end of November as a return to training or return to play.
“He’ll go back to Millwall, do his rehab and then he’ll come back and reintegrate to the group here.”
