Injury Woes Stack Up For Norwich After Palace Loss

Injury Woes Stack Up For Norwich After Palace Loss

Norwich boss Daniel Farke fears Jamal Lewis may have broken his elbow as the injuries continue to stack up for the Canaries. Norwich slipped to a 2-0 defeat against Crystal Palace in the Premier League yesterday, but a bigger concern for Farke was the loss of three key players.

Farke was left to reflect on more injury problems, with goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann forced off in the first half with the same groin injury which troubled him before, Lewis could have broken his elbow, while Ben Godfrey also took a bang to the head.

Godfrey should be okay once stitched up, but the other two could be facing spells on the sidelines, and Farke is now waiting to discover the full extent of the damage. “We know that we are in a negative situation due to our injury situation and it’s a pretty unlucky situation, but we don’t complain,” he said.

“We are disappointed. My feeling is small details cost us the game and for that we are definitely not happy with the result. “I am more concerned by Jamal Lewis, he has fallen on his elbow and needs a scan. There is a possibility his elbow is broken.We have to wait for the scan.

“Also Ben Godfrey got a gash above his eye and lost a lot of blood. I hope it is just a cut. We have to wait for assessment. A difficult situation for us and of course it doesn’t help.”

Eagles talisman Wilfried Zaha looked closer to his best at Selhurst Park, playing a part in winning a spot-kick which Luka Milivojevic scored in the 21st minute before setting up Andros Townsend in the second minute of stoppage time.

It was a deserved Premier League success for Palace and made it six unbeaten at home despite withstanding a sustained spell of pressure from Norwich towards the end of the first half.
