Fulham midfielder Steve Sidwell will miss another three to four weeks with a hernia problem.

The 29-year old has been restricted to just 14 Premier League appearances this season, mainly due to two hernia operations, with the most recent one extending his time on the sidelines which has been confirmed by manager Martin Jol.

"Sidwell had an operation [on a hernia] but it was not an easy one and then he had another operation so that could take another three or four weeks," the Dutchman said.
