Southampton are this week monitoring star striker Rickie Lambert after he took a whack on the head against Huddersfield at the weekend.

Lambert may be a doubt for Saturday's visit of Oldham after he collided with Town defender Peter Clarke, suffering a cut to his forehead and memory loss.

"He's got a nasty head wound with several stitches in there," said manager Nigel Adkins.

"He has got no recollection of the game whatsoever and that's why he came off.

"There is obviously concern so he will be checked over by the medical people. We hope he'll be in contention for selection next weekend but we'll have to wait and see."
