Brentford’s Keane Lewis-Potter will be unavailable for up to two months.

The forward, who joined the Bees from Hull City last summer, sustained a knee injury during an in-house training game at Jersey Road.

“Hopefully he’ll come back in soon,” said Thomas Frank during his press conference ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Everton.

“I think he’s very unlucky. He started the season quite well, got into the team and looked sharp.

“Then he got an injury, came back and was finally finding his way into the team.

“Against Crystal Palace he looked sharp, and he looked sharp in the weeks building up to that game.

“But unfortunately, this is part of life and part of football. He will come back stronger.”

Frank continued: “Keane had a minor surgery and everything is fixed now.

“It’s always tough to see players unable to train, compete and develop – that’s the frustrating part.

“I really miss him already because he gives us something different. He’s a little bit different from Byran [Mbeumo] and a little bit different from [Yoane] Wissa.

“He was back on a good trajectory like he was before the first injury.

“I’ve had a few small talks with him, and now it’s about how we follow up with him.

“We will try our best, me and the team, to give him a few things to work on. That could be the gym, a mental part or some preparation to help him become the goalscorer that we want him to become.

“First and foremost it’s recovery, then the gym, then the mental side of it.”

Thomas Strakosha is also unavailable for the trip to Goodison Park.

The goalkeeper has returned to training following an ankle injury, but Saturday’s game will come too soon for the Albania international.

Everyone else is fit and available for selection.
