Southampton striker Charlie Austin expected to return within one month

Charlie Austin had to be substituted as Southampton lost to Bournemouth.

Charlie Austin has been ruled out for three to four weeks after limping off during Southampton's defeat to Bournemouth on Tuesday.

Saints lost 2-0 at the Vitality Stadium and both Austin and fellow striker Shane Long were forced off through injury.

Saints initially believed the former QPR frontman could be on the sidelines for two months but after a scan on Wednesday the injury is not as bad as first feared.

Manager Ronald Koeman said: "We did a scan yesterday and he will be out for three or four weeks with a hamstring.

"It is a grade 1 hamstring injury and normally it is between two and four weeks but it wasn't the worst [type of hamstring injury]."

Austin, 26, has struggled with injury since joining Southampton in the January transfer window but Koeman says the current problem is different to those he has struggled with in the past.

He said: "It is a different place [to the injuries he has had before]. It is not the same injury that he had when he came to Southampton."

Southampton welcome Sunderland in the Premier League on Saturday but will also be without Long, who was withdrawn after a knock on his knee.

Koeman said: "Shane Long is not available for the weekend but it is a different type of injury and we have full hope that he will be available next weekend but not this weekend.

"He was feeling a knock on his knee and it is really painful but it will not be a problem next weekend.

"It is part of football, it is hard to take for Charlie, it is hard to take for us because we have lost two front players.

"We lost two and now we need the rest of the strikers to do the job."
