Oxford United striker Agon Mehmeti is expected to be sidelined for several weeks with a torn hamstring.

The 27-year-old was carried off on a stretcher eight minutes into his first start against Brighton Under-21s in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday.

The Albania international now faces a spell on the sidelines as he recovers.

"I think it's because he stretched the leg in a way that the muscle felt a lot of stress," the League One side's boss Pep Clotet told BBC Radio Oxford.

"It could be a few weeks because it's not a small one. We have enough depth in the squad to get through this."
