Cavalier striker Nicholas Hamilton is set to miss his second straight Premier League game tomorrow when they face Sandals South Coast.

Hamilton, who has netted four goals this season, suffered a head injury during a collision with Harbour View's Marcellino Blackburn on January 29.

Rudolph Speid, technical director of Cavalier, said that Hamilton is a very important member of his team and his absence is a major blow.

"He is a top striker with a lot of quality so his absence will definitely affect us, but our team is not built on one or two persons," said Speid. "We have to put somebody in his position and hope he will be able to do that job."

Hamilton has been undergoing treatment and Speid is in no rush to bring him back.

"He returned to training for the first time today (Monday), but we are not convinced that he is ready to play in such a hard and demanding game against Sandals South Coast.

"When he got tackled, he fell, hit his head, and was knocked out for a while. We took him to the doctor and he got medication. He can train but nothing physical," he said.

"When we brought him out for the first time to do some non-physical training on Monday, he was still not feeling well, so we stopped him from training," Speid added.

Hamilton, a former Holy Trinity Manning Cup star, has also contributed four assists this season.

Cavalier are third in the standing on 39 points.
