Shaun McWilliams to miss up to three weeks with "deep cut"

However, tests have shown that 19-year-old McWilliams, who was hurt during the first half of Tuesday night's 3-1 League One victory over Portsmouth at Sixfields Stadium, suffered no fracture in the incident.

The news was confirmed in a series of posts on the club's official Twitter account.

They said: "Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has just spoken to media at @MoultonCollege and confirmed no broken bone for McWilliams, but a deep cut to his foot.

"McWilliams expected to miss 2-3 weeks with the injury, but much better news than it could have been."
