West Ham are refusing to confirm early speculation that Diafra Sakho could be out for a month as reported by some newspapers.
And the simple reason is that the striker won’t even have a scan until later today!
A Hammers source told ClaretandHugh this morning: “It’s a guess based on the normal length of time for hamstring injures but we are hopeful it could be shorter than that.
“Nobody can confirm or deny at this stage because Diafra will be having his scan later today (Tuesday) and until that has happened nobody can realistically give any sort of assessment. ”
Nobody is building up their hopes but our source revealed that the player was in no serious discomfort after the game and added:
“We re certainly due a bit of luck so we all have our fingers crossed that this won’t prove unduly serious but we can’t confirm or deny anything right now.”
David Sullivan revealed last night the early signs were that it may not be a lengthy injury.
