And the Pompey winger could even miss the Blues' opening four games of the season after suffering an ankle injury in Saturday's final pre-season friendly against FC Utrecht at Fratton Park.

Lowe was substituted midway through the second half after falling awkwardly.

However, he remains hopeful that Lowe can make a quick recovery.

Speaking to The News, Jackett said: '˜It looks like his ankle strain may take two to three weeks.

'We hope it's the better end of that and won't take too long.

'But it could have been a lot worse when you see him limp off like that.

'You know, he's a quick healer, Jamal, and we hope within two weeks he's back.'
