West Ham defender Anton Ferdinand looks set to miss the rest of the season through injury.
Ferdinand was forced to limp off after just two minutes of Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Bolton with a hamstring problem.
The talented defender is set to undergo scans on the injury to find out the full extent of the strain.
Hammers boss Alan Curbishley expects to be without Ferdinand for the rest of the campaign.
Blow"It looks like Anton will be out for the rest of the season," Curbishley told The Daily Mirror.
"His injury just sums up the kind of problems we have been having.
"It was a blow for us so early in the game.
"But we just have to get on with it."
Brighter news on the injury front for Curbishley is the expected return to training for Freddie Ljungberg later this month.
