Hamstring injury could end Muskwe’s Exeter City loan


London – Exeter City boss Gary Caldwell says he is uncertain if on-loan Luton Town striker Admiral Muskwe will return to the club after suffering a “significant” hamstring injury.

The 25-year-old was hurt playing for Zimbabwe against Rwanda last month and has returned to Luton for treatment.

Caldwell says the forward will be out for “a number of months”.

“Our thoughts are with Admiral and hopefully he recovers quickly and gets back as quick as he can,” he said.

Caldwell’s options up front have been limited this season with deadline-day signing Muskwe carrying an injury when he arrived at the club and only playing eight times.

The Exeter boss says he is yet to decide if he will keep Muskwe when the January transfer window reopens or opt to cut the loan short.

“As we get closer to January that will probably be a discussion we’ll have with Luton, see what happens there and how much he is going to be out for in terms of the rest of the season,” Caldwell added.

“It’s a position where we’re fairly light, but it’s an opportunity for other people to come in and stake their place in the team and an opportunity for other people to score goals.”
