Cole faces anxious wait

Carlton Cole will find out later today the extent of the injury that caused him to be substituted in last night's 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

The West Ham and England striker pulled up with 15 minutes left on the clock with what Avram Grant later revealed is a suspected hamstring injury.

If scans prove the worst Cole could be out for around a month, the worst possible news for manager Grant who is already struggling to come to terms with losing key squad members such as Tomas Hitzlsperger, Jack Collison and Mark Noble already this season.

Speaking immediately after last night's draw with Albion that keeps United rooted to the bottom of the Premier League, Grant confirmed the news, saying: "I didn't see him [Cole] but I think it's a hamstring."

Grant also revealed that Valon Behrami missed the game after sustaining a knock in the final pre-match training session on Tuesday.
