After pulling his quadriceps back in February against Cheltenham Town, Blyth was initially ruled out for four weeks.
Hasselbaink had hoped that Jacob would have joined in training last Friday after having a session with Leicester on Thursday. Blyth aggravated his injury further after it looked like he could have featured in the squad against Stevenage on Monday night.
Blyth was a key figure in Hasselbaink’s side and it appeared that he found his best form just before his picked up his injury.
“A big set-back is obviously Jacob Blyth.
“He is not going to make it for the remainder of the season unfortunately.
“Maybe if we are in the play-offs then he will be back.”
Although Jacob has been missing for quite some time now, it doesn’t appear that the Brewers have failed to score goals or even struggle to win games. Hasselbaink’s fantastic records continue and the Brewers haven’t conceded more than one goal in a single game under the Dutch manager.
Although problems haven’t risen yet, Hasselbaink admits that Jacob is a massive blow and he hopes he will stay for the rest of the season to support the lads.
“Yes it is a massive blow but as much as we would liked to get him back, it is an opportunity for somebody else to grasp it and flourish it.
“That is what we have been doing and hopefully we will continue that.
“David has spoken to him.
“He has been a very important person in the group and he is still in contact with a lot of players.
“He is getting treatment at Leicester because obviously he is a Leicester player but he has been here at all the home matches supporting the boys.”
