Hammond blow for Saints

18 January 2010 12:29
Southampton captain Dean Hammond is set for a spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury during Saturday's 1-1 draw at Millwall. The 26-year-old midfielder could be facing a fortnight out after suffering an Achilles problem 10 minutes before the interval at The Den. "He's got an Achilles knock which might keep him out for a couple of weeks," said manager Alan Pardew. "It's a blow because he is an important player for us."
