Teemu Pukki and Oliver Skipp sidelined

5 May 2021

Teemu Pukki and Oliver Skipp will not feature in Norwich City’s final game of the 2020-21 season away at Barnsley this weekend.

Following City’s 4-1 Sky Bet Championship victory over Reading at the weekend, scans and further assessment on Pukki’s right ankle have since revealed ligament damage.
 
Over the coming period the Finland international will now undergo further medical assessment to confirm the timeframe of the injury.
 
Pukki is City’s top scorer this season, amassing 26 goals in 42 appearances in all competitions.
 
Skipp, meanwhile, has undergone surgery after scans revealed a fractured metatarsal in his right foot following a late challenge in the Reading fixture.
 
The on-loan midfielder will return to parent club Tottenham Hotspur to begin a period of rehabilitation.
 
Skipp has featured in a total of 47 games for City over the course of the current campaign, scoring his only goal in the 3-1 away win at Birmingham City in February.
 
He was voted third in the club’s recent Player of the Season awards.
