Lowe, in outstanding form this season, went down after a challenge with Hammers rival Fabián Balbuena amid worrying scenes in the first half, with fears abound that the German may be sidelined for a considerable length of time.

But specalists have confirmed that he will not undergo an operation, although Lowe will be out of action until some time next month and will definitely miss Town’s next game after the international break - the trip to Wolves on November 25.
