Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo will have to endure another week on the sidelines after the defender suffered a thigh injury in training which has forced him to miss Leganes last two clashes in the league, can authoritatively confirm.

The 25-year-old Chelsea loanee missed the 2-0 win over Getafe last weekend due to suspension and also sat out Thursday’s win at Real Valladolid but was however hopeful of a return for Sunday’s clash against 7th placed Deportivo Alaves.

Disclosing this much to the Eagles defender however played down fears of possibly losing his place in the team whilst hoping that he returns soonest to help the club fight for a top half finish on the log standings come May.

The former Middlesbrough of England player has been a stone wall in the heart of the Leganes defence since breaking into the first team and has featured in 21 league games, starting 20 of those matches.

A win for the Mauricio Pellegrino-led boys would see then move into the top half of the log for the first time and put them in a shock contention for European places should result else were work in their favour.
