Middlesbrough defender Ugo Ehiogu is set for at least another three weeks on the sidelines.
Boro boss Steve McClaren has confirmed that Ehiogu will miss the club's next three games with a troublesome calf problem.
The former Aston Villa star picked up the injury against Birmingham earlier this month when making his comeback from a back injury.
Ehiogu will now almost certainly miss Boro's games with Chelsea, Manchester United and Banik Ostrava over the coming weeks.
McClaren, though, is hopeful that Spanish star Gaizka Mendieta - who has a similar calf problem - could be back next week.
