GARETH McAuley is set to be out of action for a fortnight, after hobbling off with a thigh injury during yesterday's 1-1 draw at Plymouth.

Town centre-half McAuley suffered the injury early in the first half, but soldiered on until being substituted after 25 minutes.

Manager Roy Keane confirmed: "We've picked up another injury. It's hard to say how long, with a thigh injury, and Gareth will have a scan in the next day or two.

"He could be out for a fortnight, but Alex (Bruce) came back in and did well."

Town entertain Derby County next weekend.
