Lowe toÂ miss Pompey opener against Luton
Jamal Lowe is out of Pompey's League One curtain-raiser against Luton.
And the Pompey winger could even miss the Blues' opening four gamesÂ 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.
Pompey boss Kenny Jackett confirmed today that the former Hampton &Â Richmond player suffered a ligament strain and will be out for '˜2-3 weeks'.
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.'
