Carroll out for six weeks

5 September 2012 18:47

West Ham striker Andy Carroll is set to miss the next six weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury against Fulham.

The 23-year-old striker, who is on loan from English Premier League rivals Liverpool, had a great start to life at Upton Park, worrying Fulham's defence throughout as West Ham went 3-0 up before half-time.

Carroll limped off in the second half with the injury and co-owner David Gold confirmed his six-week absence on Twitter.

Gold tweeted: "Six weeks out. Back mid-October. I think this would be the worst case scenario. DG."

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is under no illusions as to how important Carroll is to his side's chances this season.

He told reporters: "If Andy scores between 10 and 15 goals, it is going to give us a great chance to be out of the relegation zone.

"If Andy gets 15 to 20 goals, we can get in the top 10 because all we have to do there is to produce enough clean sheets to make sure we get points on the board with the goals that he scores."
