EMPOLI striker Antonio Di Natale faces a brief spell on the sidelines after injuring his knee in training.

Di Natale picked up the knock after an innocuous collision with a team-mate during a training session on Wednesday.

The Italian international's injury is not believed to be serious but he is expected to be ruled out of the weekend's tussle against Milan.

His injury comes at a time when Di Natale is determined to recapture his form which he feels has dipped since his call-up to the national squad.

It is also leaves Empoli coach Silvio Baldini short on firepower for the clash against Milan as striking colleague Luca Saudati is also injured.
