Kidderminster Harriers are to lose the services of on-loan Doncaster Rovers youngster Will Longbottom through injury.

The lively teenager has performed well in his brief time at the club, starring particularly in the 3-0 win at Southport.

Unfortunately he was injured during the second half of Saturday’s FA Cup win at Deeping Rangers, suffering ankle damage after an unfortunate challenge.

Longbottom’s loan spell was due to continue for another couple of weeks at least, but the player will now return to his parent club for treatment.

Boss John Eustace commented: “Unfortunately Will is going to be out for seven or eight weeks.

“He’s going to go back to Doncaster and get treated – we’ll see how he gets on.

“You can see away at Southport the quality he has.

“I thought he had a really good game for a lad who is only 18 – to go away there and score, and do well.

“You could see he then dipped at Tamworth a few days later but that’s all part and parcel of his development.”
