Bizarre Injury For Rival's Keeper

Bizarre Injury For Rival's Keeper

Wolves goalkeeper Carl Ikeme picked up a bizarre injury at half time in the match against Bristol City on Saturday.

Ikeme let in a comical own goal in which he allowed a back-pass to go through his legs and into the net. Then while getting a rollocking at half time, the keeper pouched the tactics board and ended up breaking a bone.

Ikeme had to be substituted because of the injury, which was later confirmed as a broken hand, not only did he miss the second half of the win over City; he could now miss the rest of the season.

'Because he made a mistake, he punched the tactics board out of frustration,' said Wolves boss Dean Saunders to their official website.

'It's only cardboard but there's a metal bar behind it and it damaged his hand where he caught it.

'He didn't mean to break his hand but it's created a problem for us because he isn't going to be available. I'm really disappointed with it and so is he.'
