Pahars hit by new injury blow

Southampton striker Marian Pahars is facing another six weeks out of action through injury.

The Latvian has figured just ten times for the Saints this season and has not appeared since November with ankle trouble.

Now the 26-year-old is set for six more weeks out as the injury has failed to clear up, leaving Pahars frustrated as the south coast side sit sixth in the Premiership.

Pahars will undergo a minor operation on Thursday in a bid to finally end the problem.

Southampton physio Jim Joyce revealed that the club do not know the exact extent of the injury but are hopeful it will be sorted out.

"We are hoping Marian will just need a clean-out but the surgeon won't really know until he gets in there.

"The problem seems to be some scar tissue at the back of the ankle joint, but it does not show up well on the scan so we need to have a look", he told the club's official website.
