Lallana picked up a knee injury during last weekend's win over Reading and the club are sweating over the full extent of the problem.

Southampton 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 skipper 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."
