Norwich moved to the top of the Championship table be beating Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday.
Following a tricky start to the campaign, Daniel Farke’s men are eight matches unbeaten, and really hitting top form ahead of a congested December period.
However, ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Stoke City, the Canaries boss revealed some extremely bad news on the injury front for the league leaders.
Both Kenny McLean and Jordan Hugill were substituted against Boro, whilst the influential Todd Cantwell missed the visit to Teeside due to a hip injury he’s been nursing.

And Farke confirmed that the trio are all facing at least weeks on the sidelines – with McLean possibly ruled out for months, depending on whether the midfielder is required to have surgery.
It means that all three will definitely miss tomorrow’s game at the Bet365 – and the Carrow Road faithful have been reacting to the news on social media.

I’ll love to know how many injuries we’ve had under Farke. So unlucky with injuries the last 18 months

Carbon copy of last season injury wise. If we get through the next 8 games in the next month and are still in the top 6, Farke has worked wonders. https://t.co/AscXI9NzvE
