Saints have confirmed that Luke Shaw has badly gashed his right knee.

The young left back was stretchered off during the win at Aston Villa after a heavy challenge.

Nigel Adkins was unable to give any timescale for a return but Shaw may face a short spell on the sidelines as a result.

Danny Fox could well be set for a spell in the team to deputise.

Saints are already dealing with injuries to key men Adam Lallana and Jose Fonte while Guly do Prado was unable to figure due to illness.

Gaston Ramirez was also forced off at Villa Park but that was simply cramp.

Luke is young, hopefully he will heal very quickly, another amazing performance from the lad, lets hope it is no more than a gash it will be a shame if he has to miss any of the big games we've got coming up! STID

This very bad luck on Luke and the Supporters just when this exciting talented young Player is having a fantastic season, let's hope he heals quick and gets back into the side, he is one of the best fullbacks I have seen in the league since Ashley Cole started at Arsenal and certainly for Southampton, COYR

Perhaps someone can send this to Tony Cottee as he reported the ref had stopped the game owing to an injury being feigned.

Get well soon Luke, use the force and come back soon! Man of the match for me, he gets better and better every game, a legend in the making. Great result today, withstood some severe pressure in the second half and deserved the win. Thought Villa Park was very negative towards away supporters, even the pub near the ground wanted £3 to get in!! COYR onwards and upwards, very proud to be a saint as always

This may be slightly off topic, but let me share a "good gash" story. In Phuket over the New Year I met two Japanese women from Osaka.They were mightily impressed that I supported Saints, since they had pictures of Chung and Maya Yoshida on their phones. As it was their last night, I felt it only right that it should be used in culturally exchanging with them both...it's great to be a Saints fan, you never know when it's going to come in handy...
