English-born Ghanaian youngster Tariq Lamptey will not feature for Brighton & Hove Albion for the next three weeks after aggravating his hamstring injury.
Lamptey picked up the injury in the second week of December during the goalless draw at Fulham and has already missed four games.
He was on road to recovery but has aggravated the injury and now he has to stay back until the middle of February.
The 20-year-old right-back is expected to miss games against Manchester City, Leeds, Fulham, Tottenham and potentially Liverpool.
His injury is a big worry to manager Graham Potter as he has been one of his key players so far this season.
