The former Bury midfielder had to come off at half-time in the clash with Shrewsbury last weekend and subsequent scans have revealed a tear in his hamstring.

"It's a real disappointment for us because he's an important player for us and he's shown that," manager Brian Laws told the club's official website.

"He was getting back to fitness as well, which was really pleasing, and he was making a real good partnership with Michael Collins in midfield.

"Certainly Mozika's injury has hit us really hard."

Mozika had made 12 appearances for the Iron this season, scoring once, before injury struck.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
