Enner Valencia knee injury worries West Ham manager Slaven Bilic

Enner Valencia scored on Thursday but then left the game on a stretcher after suffering a knee injury.

Slaven Bilic saw his 10-man West Ham let slip a two-goal lead and was sent to the stands on Thursday night -- but he was left worried by a potentially serious injury to Enner Valencia.

Goals from Valencia and Mauro Zarate had put the Hammers in control of their Europa League third qualifying tie only for Romanian side Astra Giurgiu to stage a stunning comeback.

Jonas Hofmann scored  the only goal in the 14th minute to help Dortmund leave Austria with a slim advantage in the third qualifying round.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sent Henrikh Mkhitaryan through on goal and the Armenian unselfishly passed on to Hofmann to slot into an empty net.

Thursday's game turned after James Collins' second yellow card, and Astra rallied from two goals down to draw.

West Ham squandered a two-goal lead after James Collins was sent off as they once again toiled...
