Roy Hodgson admits that Kagisho Dikgacoi will be out for ‘a while’ and hopes that he bring back one of Zoltan Gera, Simon Davies or Bobby Zamora for tomorrow’s game against Burnley.

Dikgacoi limped out of Fulham’s dreary draw at Bolton with an ankle problem and had a scan to assess the damage over the weekend. Hodgson doesn’t sound too optimistic about the prospect of the South African international making a swift return.

I fear our injury toll will worsen because I do not see Dikgacoi playing for a while. I can only hope that we get one of Davies, Gera or Zamora back because we are running very short on players.
