Enyimba FC striker Christian Obiozor will be sidelined for one month with a knee injury.
Obiozor has not featured for the People’s Elephants since their game at Enugu Rangers on 19 July.
The club had thought the injury to his left leg was minor but subsequent scans have revealed a damage to his cruciate ligament, according to the side’s media officer Farriel Alaputa.
The team doctor Ferdinand Ajere says the 20-year-old will be out for four weeks.
