Josh Dacres-Cogley and Charlie Lakin have suffered injury misfortune on loan.

Dacres-Cogley fractured his ankle playing for Crawley Town in their victory at Leyton Orient.

The defender, who had created an initial good impression at Gabriele Cioffi's team, was victim of a late tackle just 16 minutes into what was his third appearance.

He could be sidelined for around three months.

Midfielder Lakin suffered a thigh injury during his debut for Stevenage against Mansfield Town in their 0-0 draw.

Lakin faces several weeks out of action.

In happier news, Michael Luyambula was part of Crawley's Carabao Cup shock against Norwich City.

Luyambula was in goal and kept a clean sheet in the 1-0 Second Round upset.

Former Blues forward Beryly Lubala notched the goal.
