Hughton sorry for suffering Kane

Published Add your comment

Norwich manager Chris Hughton was counting the cost of his side's Capital One Cup victory with the news that Harry Kane could be sidelined for six weeks.

The 19-year-old striker, on loan from Tottenham, damaged his ankle in Wednesday night's 1-0 win against Doncaster. Kane is also understood to have broken a metatarsal although the full extent of the injury was still being assessed on Thursday afternoon.

Hughton, however, is resigned to losing him for a lengthy period, and he said: "It was so innocuous because there was no contact. It is a shame. We know he went over on his ankle. He is being assessed. He will certainly be out for a period of weeks, a month-plus rather than short of that. It is disappointing for us."
