Pukki gone off injured after 12min

Recommended Posts

Never like to see a player injured, but it might do him a favour in the long run - he has played non-stop for several weeks due to the championship and internationals so he could do with a rest.   A bit of recuperation and a break might just be what he needs to kick on through the rest of the season.  Gives Rhodes and Srbeny the chance to get some form going too.

Just saw the video of the incident, he was trying to turn with the ball at his feet by the the touchline and seems he strained something in his upper left leg. He looked to be walking ok as he went off so I suspect he was wise and knew he shouldn’t play on in case he made it worse. He has had a hell of alot of game time recently so a week off might be a good thing.

On the positive side, it does give Rhodes a chance to show what he can do for us...a chance he will want to grab with both hands

Still do not particularly rate Dennis, but there is little doubt that he has come on a lot and is showing glimpses of the fact that he can have a role under certain circumstances.

Not a starter, and may never be, but his attributes are such that that he might be a useful weapon to bring on at about seventy minutes when we are chasing points.

Found an article online from Finland last night.

The manager reported he had some sort of back cramp/spasm in the warm up but told the manager he was fine to start the same. Felt it again after a ‘spurt’ and didn’t want to risk it so he came straight off. Quote from the keeper after saying he feft fine shortly after, and the manager has said the ‘Norwich physios won’t have a problem with him’

He did have k tape on one of his legs but that’s not really too unusual nowadays, not only is it used for protection from injury but it can also increase blood flow assisting cramp etc.

Fingers crossed 🤞🏼
