Osaze Odemwingie is set for a two-week spell on the sidelines after sustaining a hamstring injury in training.

The news will come as a blow to the Super Eagles of Nigeria forward who endured a frustrating 2014-15 campaign after suffering knee ligament damage in the 1-0 win over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last August.

He, however, made a full recovery back from that setback to feature in the latter stages of last season. The winger even built upon that during the Potters’ pre-season schedule.

Odemwingie was a second-half substitute against Liverpool in last Sunday’s 2015-16 curtain-raiser, but will take no part in Saturday’s trip to White Hart Lane to face Tottenham.

And his coach, Mark Hughes, is quite disappointed with the latest injury problem of the 34-year-old.

“Unfortunately Peter has got a hamstring strain and is likely to miss the next couple of weeks,” Hughes said at the pre-match press conference.

“It’s disappointing for him because he has worked tremendously hard throughout pre-season.”

He should be available, though, for selection in their fourth game of the season against West Brom at the Britannia Stadium on August 29.
