Middlesbrough fullback Tony McMahon has broken down while on-loan at Blackpool.

The Boro Academy graduate, 21, joined the Seasiders on a one-month loan to regain full fitness after recovering from a broken leg.

But he limped out of Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Southampton after just 10 minutes with a hamstring strain.

It was only his second appearance for Simon Grayson's men and looks set to rule him out for at least a fortnight to spell the end of his short stay at Bloomfield Road.

"We'll assess the injury today, but at the moment it's not looking good," said Grayson.
