Joe Cole injury woe for West Ham

Joe Cole injury woe for West Ham

West Ham midfielder Joe Cole faces the threat of spending two to four weeks on the sidelines after picking up a hamstring injury during Hummers’ 1-0 win over Stoke City.

The 31-year-old midfielder, the apprentice of West Ham academy, has scored two goals since joining the club from Liverpool on a free transfer in January. However the London side could lose Cole until the end of the season, as the medical assessment revealed the injury is serious.

After the win West Ham are staying in the 12th place in the Premier League table. West Ham boss Sam Allardyce revealed his delight following the crucial win: “It was a great result at Stoke City and it puts us back in the middle of the pack on 33 points and ever closer to that big 40 that we all look for. We’ve relied on our home form a huge amount this year and when you get beaten by a wonder goal as we were in our last game you’ve got to come and try to pick up some points away from home to get yourself back on track. To do it at Stoke City is a challenge in itself and we mastered that challenge very well and deserved to get that 1-0 win.”
