Lawlor suffered damage to his shoulder during Rovers’ defeat to Leicester City U21s in the Leasing.com Trophy.

“We think it could be a couple of weeks,” Moore said.

“It could be longer but the physio wants to allow it to settle down before making a detailed assessment of the date and time when he comes back.

“I would say it will be a minimum of a couple of weeks.”

Moore admits he is unsure whether it is the same shoulder which Lawlor injured last season and missed the second half of the campaign.
