Southampton are without injured striker Danny Ings for Saturday’s crucial home Premier League clash against Cardiff City.
Ings was forced off in the first half of the 1-1 draw at Burnley last time out after picking up a hamstring problem and manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has confirmed he is facing a spell on the sidelines.
“Danny made a big step towards the ball and then a sprint after 20 minutes, and then he had a problem with his hamstring,” he said at a press conference on Thursday. “It may take 2-3 weeks until he can come back, which is not good. We’ll miss him for sure because he’s a good player and a good striker.”
However, the Austrian tactician provided better news on midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, left-back Ryan Bertrand and centre-back Maya Yoshida, with the trio all available for selection.
“The good thing is that we have Pierre back after concussion. It is important for us because we missed him a little bit with his experience in the position,” he added.
“Ryan is back and Maya Yoshida is back after the Asian Cup, so we have a few more options, which helps us. “It helps to have better training sessions also and more quality in the training.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
