Huddersfield Town were delat a frustrating injury blow on Tuesday evening, with forward Josh Koroma being forced off against Sheffield Wednesday.
The Terriers won the match 2-0, after an impressive first-half display against the Owls, where Koroma opened the scoring for the home side.
But he was unable to complete the match, and hobbled off after 62 minutes, as he was replaced by Jaden Brown.
Speaking in a post-match press conference (quotes sourced from Yorkshire Live), Huddersfield boss Carlos Corberan revealed that Koroma will take longer to recover from his injury than midfielder Jonathan Hogg would, which will be frustrating to hear for the club’s supporters.
“It’s a different type of feeling with Josh. I don’t think Hogg is going to take a lot of time to recover but I think Koroma is going to take a little bit more time to recover.
“It was one action in the opposite box where he stretched the muscle that unfortunately created an injury.
“We will need to wait for the scan to come back but I think it will take a bit more time than we would like.”
Koroma has been in impressive form this season, and has scored six goals in 17 appearances for the Terriers this term, as they currently sit 12th in the Championship table.
Huddersfield are set to return to action this weekend, when they take on promotion-chasing Bournemouth, in what is certain to be a tricky test for Corberan’s side, especially without Koroma available for selection.

They’ll be hoping he’s not out for too long.
After such an impressive performance on the night against Sheffield Wednesday, this will have been a frustrating update for Huddersfield Town supporters.
Koroma has caught the eye with a number of strong performances already this season for the Terriers, and he’ll be key to any chance they have of mounting a serious challenge for a top-six finish this term.
With the hectic festive period coming up, Koroma will be eager to return to the squad at the earliest of opportunities.
