SAINTS winger Lee Holmes is likely to be out for at least two months after damaging the medial ligament in his right knee.

Holmes suffered the injury during Sunday's 4-1 defeat to QPR and left Loftus Road on crutches.

He will be in a leg brace for between six and eight weeks and will then face another few weeks before he returns to match fitness.
