Norwich winger Wes Hoolahan has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

The former Blackpool man was substituted at half-time of the 1-0 win over Plymouth last weekend with ankle ligament damage and a scan has revealed he will be out for at least six weeks.

Manager Bryan Gunn told the club`s official website: "It`s a devastating blow in our current situation."

He added: "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.

"But we have to remain positive. This is now an opportunity for one of a number of players who have been waiting for their chance."
