Blow: Cork has been ruled out for up to six weeks with a knee injury
Cork was seen at St Mary's in a leg
brace on Thursday and has confirmed via his Twitter account that he
faces another stretch on the sidelines.
'Another 4-6 weeks, with my left knee,' he said on the social media site.
'Lucks just not going my way this season. Could be worse, but was so close to getting back from the ankle.'
