Crock Carroll out for a month

By: Staff Writer

The permanently-crocked Andy Carroll will be sidelined for at least a month after limping off during Tuesday night's 3-1 win over Bournemouth, it has been revealed.

The 27-year-old striker has endured a catastrophic catalogue of injuries since joining West Ham three-and-a-half years ago and is set for yet another spell on the sidelines after pulling up less than quarter-of-an-hour into Tuesday night's clash with the Cherries at Dean Court.

This afternoon West Ham United confirmed that, following am earlier scan, the former England international is expected to be out until mid-February.

A brief statement posted on the club's website read: "West Ham United can confirm Andy Carroll underwent a scan on his left leg on Thursday morning. The results show an injury to his hamstring, which is expected to keep him out of action for a month.

"Carroll’s absence means Slaven Bilic is likely to turn to either Enner Valencia or Nikica Jelavic for Saturday’s trip to Newcastle United."

Carroll's latest setback means that Slaven Bilic is now without either of his two first choice strikers until next month, with Diafra Sakho also still some distance away from returning to action.
