City winger Luke Chadwick's injury jinx has struck yet again - forcing him to return to Carrow Road from his loan spell with MK Dons.

The former Manchester United player has been in impressive form since joining the League One club on a three-month deal, scoring three times in eight appearances, including both goals in the 2-1 win at Leyton Orient.

But MK Dons boss Roberto Di Matteo said Chadwick would be out for a lengthy spell. The 27-year-old missed Saturday's 3-1 victory against Hartlepool after sustaining a knee injury in training.

Di Matteo told the club's official website: “Unfortunately, Luke picked up an injury in training on Thursday and he's going to be out for a while.

“He's gone back to Norwich to start his rehab but it's too early to put a time scale on how long he will be out.”

Chadwick, 28 tomorrow, joined the Canaries from Stoke two years ago, initially on loan, but has made just 18 senior appearances for the club, scoring twice.

He scored on his debut in a 3-1 defeat at Ipswich in November 2006, but was stretchered off in the same game with a badly gashed knee after colliding with an advertising board, and was sidelined for four months after an operation.

After a brief return to action, he then suffered a hamstring injury. Last season, his return to the side under manager Glenn Roeder was cut short by a shoulder operation and he has not started a first team game since the 3-1 win at Blackpool last November.

On October 1, Chadwick joined MK Dons on loan, with Roeder suggesting a permanent move was a possibility. His City contract runs out at the end of the season.
