Southampton midfielder Jack Cork has confirmed he faces up to six weeks on the sidelines with a knee injury. The 23 year old limped off in the 81st minute of Tuesday's 2-0 Capital One Cup third round victory over Sheffield Wednesday.
It was Cork's first match back from an ankle problem suffered in pre-season. He was seen today at St Mary's in a leg brace and has confirmed via his Twitter account that he faces another stretch on the sidelines.
He said: "Another 4-6 weeks, with my left knee. Luck's just not going my way this season. Could be worse, but was so close to getting back from the ankle."
Southampton footballer Guly Do Prado has been charged with drink-driving after he was stopped by police in his Porsche. The Premier League striker was detained after he was reported to be driving 'erratically' in the early hours of Monday morning.
The 30-year-old, whose full name is Guilherme Do Prado Raymundo, was subsequently charged with drink-driving. The Brazilian-born player has been bailed to appear at Southampton Magistrates' Court on September 12.
