League One side Portsmouth fear that Irish keeper Stephen Henderson will miss the rest of the season due to injury.

The 29-year-old pulled up on his debut for Pompey, following a deadline day move from Nottingham Forest, and boss Kenny Jackett admits that Henderson might not play again this term.

"The estimation is he'll be out for the season with his quad," Jackett said. "We felt his experience could help us in quite a young group. The injury's frustrating for him and for us."

This is the latest injury blow for Henderson who has missed chunks of previous seasons with shoulder and Achilles problems.
