Huddersfield star Ashton Golding facing three months on the sidelines

Huddersfield’s new recruit Ashton Golding could be out for three months with a hamstring injury.

The Jamaica international picked up the hamstring injury in the club’s pre-season friendly against Wakefield.

Giants coach Simon Woolford said: “At this stage he’s out for an extended period, we’re looking at two to three months out.

“He’s going to be a little while. We hoped it wasn’t anything too bad. We had an ultrasound which gave us some hope but the scans have come back and have obviously revealed something more sinister.

“He’ll see a specialist in London, and we’ll know more next week but it’s looking like an extended period out.”
