Norwich take softly-softly approach to broken leg victim Pilkington

Recent Norwich signing Anthony Pilkington dislocated his left ankle and suffered a broken fibula in what turned out to be his final game for Huddersfield in March. Canaries boss Paul Lambert handed him his first appearance since his horrific broken leg when the winger came off the bench for the final 19 minutes of the Canaries' pre-season friendly against Real Zaragoza on Wednesday night after almost five months on the sidelines.

Lambert hailed the 23 year old for "lifting" Norwich in last night's 1-1 draw, adding: "He looked very good when he came on and that's a big bonus for us, him coming back.

"He's worked really hard with the fitness lads here.

"I can't rush him back after the injury he had but he's doing very, very well at the minute."
