Southampton's Adam Lallana on crutches with his knee in a brace following injury against Reading

Saints captain Adam Lallana was on crutches, with his knee in a brace, following the 1-0 victory against Reading.

The midfielder was injured in the first-half when Royals midfielder Jay Tabb accidentally tumbled into him.

Lallana was forced off the pitch and was replaced by Gaston Ramirez.

Nigel Adkins revealed after the match that Lallana's knee had been immobilised and that he would be looked at again tomorrow.

“He’s picked up a knee injury,” Adkins confirmed. “As a precaution, as we always do, he’s in a brace and on crutches and we will assess him tomorrow and take him from there.”

What an important result today.
We kept the faith even after missing many chances.
Good team performance.
What great hold up play by Rickie, then to slot the the ball through the players legs , to enable Nat Clyne to produce a good cross ball for Punch to slot the ball in.
Well done, big lift for the team and the support, who were great again today.

Yes as NA said on Solent it is standard proceedure for an injury like that. If they get the right treatment to it quickly enough it can save tim healing, no doubt MGRA will enlighten us with his renowned medical expertise.

Doubtless MRSA will be happy to comment - as he correctly predicted, this is Gaston's first game since his injury. Hang on....

Apparently Yosh was on similar support apparatus when he left the ground, looks like we are going to need that break!

Didn't seem too bad at the time, as he walked round the pitch unaided, to get to the dressing room.
Hopefully the 2 week break will be enough to see him in place for the Mackems.

Rather than send a get well card to Adam; I'd like to send a plain red one to the ref for his disgraceful performance.

Funny, Dan, I thought this one was better than most we've had, especially the famous ones like Clattenberg and Halsey(?).

Your players aren't there long enough to pick up any real injuries.
