Southampton's victory over Reading came at a cost yesterday.

While there were many positives for Southampton, including a second Premier League clean sheet, they did lose captain Adam Lallana to injury in the first half.

"We've got him in a brace and he is on crutches at the moment," Adkins said. "That is standard procedure.

"He has got a knee injury and what we will do is assess that over the next 24 to 48 hours and that will give us a better prognosis to how long potentially he will be out for.

"It could be short, it could be longer. We don't know so we won't guess at the moment."
