Norwich striker James Vaughan will be sidelined for “three or four months” after picking up a knee injury, the Canaries manager Paul Lambert revealed.
The 23 year-old, whose three appearances for Norwich were always coming from the bench, sustained the problem on Monday’s win over Sunderland only 10 minutes after getting on the field.
“It’s a blow because he’s been looking good. But he’s a strong lad, we’ll do everything to help him”, Lambert said.
Vaughan is not the only bad news for the Scot, who will also be without midfielder Korey Smith until next year due to an ankle injury.
