Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish admits he does not know when Steven Gerrard will return after his latest injury setback.

The Reds captain was expected to play some part against West Brom on Saturday, but failed to make the match day squad after suffering a groin complaint during training the previous day.

Gerrard had an operation on the problematic area on March 11 but continues to be hampered by his groin, and Dalglish has revealed that his skipper picked up a fresh injury on Friday.

"Steven turned and felt a sharp pain," said the Liverpool manager.

"It's the same area but not the same injury.


"I don't know when he will be back. I've got to look at what the damage is."

Liverpool also lost Glen Johnson and Daniel Agger to injury during their defeat to West Brom at the Hawthorns to further damage their hopes of European qualification.

"It was innocuous as were the two lads' injuries - both Glen and Daniel did it when they were running. Daniel's injury we think is a tendon behind his knee and Glen looks as if he has damaged a muscle," added Dalglish.

"To lose three players in April would be a blow for anybody.

"It's disappointing for Steven because he was was training really well and looking forward to being back in among the lads."
