The England U21 international saw a specialist on Monday evening before sitting out the 1-0 Championship reverse at Burnley.

"It's looking like we'll be without Tom for a couple of weeks at least," said manager Neil Warnock.

"He caught a finger in the eye and suffered with his vision, and it will take a couple of weeks for it to heal properly."

Skipper Lee Peltier moved to partner Jason Pearce at centre-back at Turf Moor.

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
