Don Hutchison has been ruled out of Coventry City's match away to Queens Park Rangers on Saturday because of an ankle injury. And the midfield player could also miss the match away to Preston North End a week tonight.
Hutchison, the former Scotland international, was stretchered off during the match against Sheffield Wednesday last Saturday with an ankle ligament injury. He will undergo a scan this week to discover the extent of the problem.
The worst-case scenario is that he will be ruled out for a month, which would come as a significant setback for a club that has finally learnt the art of winning.
The 3-1 victory at home to Wednesday halted a decline that had been frustrating manager Micky Adams.
But Coventry did not play well and they were aided by the sendings-off of two Wednesday players.
"I am not going to say what a wonderful performance it was because we had a helping hand," Adams said. "It's nice to have a little bit of luck for a change because we have had one of those seasons where nothing has gone for us really.
"It was a professional performance in the second half in terms of what we needed to do to get the goals. It's never easy to play against ten men although it is a little bit easier against nine. Having said that we knew the pressure was on us to score. From my point of view, a win is a win and the important thing is that we push on from this and build."
