Korea Republic midfielder Kim Do-Heon will be out of action for up to six weeks after suffering a knee injury in his side's win at Middlesbrough.

Kim was taken off in the first minute at the Riverside Stadium with suspected medial ligament damage after attempting to run onto Robert Koren's pass.

"Kim needs to go and get a scan," boss Tony Mowbray told the club's website.

"We hope it's only medial knee damage to keep him out for six weeks, and that it's not any worse than that."
