The severity of Ipswich Town striker Will Keane’s hamstring injury will become clearer later this week.
The Hull loanee, who netted his third goal for the club from the spot at Wigan on Saturday, was substituted in the second half at the DW Stadium and left the field holding his left hamstring.
Keane is working with the Blues’ physios with boss Paul Lambert hopeful the striker will be fit enough to play in Saturday’s game with Reading.
“Will has been terrific for us so it’s obviously disappointing for him and for us that he’s picked up an injury,” Lambert told the club website.
“He’s working with the physios and we will know more before the weekend. We will do everything we can to get him back as soon as possible.”

“It’s a massive game,” Lambert said.
“They all are but they are the closest team that we can reach so that adds to it.
“We’re playing well. That’s the main thing. We are on a little run and we have to look to keep that momentum going.
“The support we’ve had has been fantastic and we are going to need all that again on Saturday.”
