Wolves loanee braced for two-game Portsmouth absence
Joe Mason has been ruled out of Pompey's next two matches.
The forward sustained a groin injury after two minutes of the reserves' Central League Cup defeat to AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday afternoon.
As a consequence, he is expected to spend around 10 days on the sidelines.
That will rule him out of Saturday's FA Cup trip to Maidenhead, followed by the visit of Spurs under-21s in the Checkatrade Trophy (Tuesday, November 13).
The Wolves loanee's return target is the Saturday, November 24, visit to Scunthorpe.
Kenny Jackett said: '˜Joe is out for aÂ week to 10 days maybe, he will miss Saturday and Tuesday, but hopefully Scunthorpe will be okay.
'˜He has been consistently substitute without getting that break when the team has been settled, pretty successful and a lack of injuries so far.'
