Southampton skipper Lallana to make most of enforced absence

Southampton boss Nigel Adkins admits skipper Adam Lallana’s two-week break from playing will give him the chance to return from injury without missing a game.

Southampton boss Nigel Adkins admits skipper Adam Lallana’s two-week break from playing will give him the chance to return from injury without missing a game.

The Saints do not have a game until December 22 when Sunderland visit St Mary's, giving Lallana extra time to recover from the injury, and Adkins is hoping his captain will be able to make a speedy recovery.

"We will assess the injury in the next few days but the good news is that we do not have a match now until December 22 so he has extra time to recover," said Adkins.

"Had there been a game this weekend, who knows? Adam's knee is immobilised and we will see how he gets on."
