Konchesky delivers more bad news for Liverpool

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson expects left-back Paul Konchesky to miss the Reds' two games this week due to a hamstring strain sustained against Sunderland on Saturday. Hodgson is unsure as to the severity of the injury, although he does not think the 29-year-old will require a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

However, he will miss Thursday's Europa League clash at Utrecht and their weekend Premier League fixture with newly-promoted Blackpool.

"He's got a hamstring strain," Hodgson told the club's official website.

"I couldn't tell you exactly how bad it is yet. I don't think it's extremely bad but I certainly think it would rule him out for Thursday and next Sunday.

"Hopefully it won't be much more problematic."
