Wigan Warriors confirm that winger Josh Charley will miss up to two months with a knee injury.

Wigan Warriors have confirmed that winger Josh Charley will be out of action for up to two months with a knee injury.

The England international, 22, suffered the problem on Friday during Wigan's win over Dewsbury Rams in the fourth round of the Challenge Cup.

"Josh is going to be out for six to eight weeks," Warriors coach Shaun Wane is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"He doesn't need an operation but needs time off his legs. He's slightly twisted his knee but there's no ligament damage."

Wigan return to action this Friday when they host London Broncos in Super League.
