The club said on Twitter: “Following scans and clinical assessment, we can confirm that @dele_official has suffered a hamstring strain, sustained during Sunday’s match.
“Dele will now undergo a period of rehabilitation with our medical staff, with the expectation of returning to training in early March.”
