Portsmouth forward stretchered off for Bognor – but hopes he’ll feature in final at Brighton & Hove Albion
Bognor are hopeful Bradley Lethbridge will be able to line-up at the Amex Stadium next month.
The Pompey Academy forward was stretchered off on the stroke of half-time of the Rocks’ 2-0 Bostik League premier division loss to champions Dorking Wanderers yesterday.
First-team coach Robbie Blake admits Lethbridge, 18, is unlikely to feature in Bognor’s remaining two league games
However, there is optimism the Gosport talent will be fit for Bognor's Sussex Senior Cup final against Burgess Hill.
It takes place at Brighton & Hove Albion's ground on May 7.
Blake said: ‘He’s not broken anything just badly bruised, may struggle for any league football this season, but hopefully maybe a slight chance of final.’
Lethbridge has enjoyed a successful loan spell at Nyewood Lane this season, scoring 12 goals in 38 appearances.
He also featured twice during Pompey’s run to Checkatrade Trophy glory.
