Harbour View's striker Sean Fraser is sidelined for two-weeks after twisting his right knee against Sandals South Coast in their Red Stripe Premier League game on Monday night at the Harbour View Stadium.

Harbour View's team manager Oneil Smith told STAR Sports that the injury is not that serious as they had initially thought.

"This is way different from what we first thought because we thought that he would have been out for a longer period. The physiotherapist told us that it is only a twist and with the treatment that he has received, in about two weeks, he should be doing strength work and start preparing to start playing again," he said.

Smith pointed out that Fraser's absence will be a big blow for the team on the field, but expects the player to still be around the team while he is recovering.

"His presence in the dressing room is very important to the younger players because even if he is not on the field, we still need him around the team," Smith said.

The much-travelled Fraser, who has had a number of professional stints in United States, El Salvador, Puerto Rico, Trinidad and Tobago, Brazil and Thailand, has netted one goal in three appearances for Harbour View this season.

"We always need a player like him on the field because of his experience, but if you know his age, we will have to manage his game time," Smith said.

The 34-year-old, Fraser, who also represented Portmore United in the Premier League, has nine international caps for Jamaica's senior team.

He played for Jamaica in the 1999 FIFA U-17 World Championship in New Zealand and was a member of country's Under-20 team that played in the 2001 FIFA World Youth Cup in Argentina.
