Influential Norwich City midfielder Wes Hoolahan is unlikely to play again this season having been ruled out through injury.
The 26-year-old Republic of Ireland international was substituted at half-time having taken a knock in the 1-0 win over Plymouth on Saturday. A scan and subsequent exploratory operation yesterday revealed ankle ligament damage and means that Hoolahan will be out for at least six weeks - effectively ending his season with the Canaries.
City manager Bryan Gunn was obviously disappointed at the news. He said: "It's a devastating blow in our current situation. Wes has been a big player in recent weeks and losing him for one game would have been bad enough, never mind the remaining games of the season.
