Knee injury rules midfielder out for two months
Cole Skuse is expected to be out of action for up to two months with a knee injury.
The midfielder sustained cartilage damage during training last week and won’t feature for Blues until the New Year.
“It’s a blow because he’s been fantastic for us,” Town boss Paul Lambert told the Club website.
“It’s another situation we are going to have to look at because we have got a lot of young lads in there.”
It will be the 32-year-old’s longest absence from the Town first-team since he joined the Club from Bristol City in the summer of 2013, with Cole making his 227th appearance for Blues in last weekend’s defeat at Nottingham Forest.
