Blackburn's Rigters breaks down at Norwich

Norwich City loan signing Maceo Rigters is unlikely to play again this season after picking up a hamstring injury.

The pacy striker played just 10 minutes in Saturday's 2-1 loss at Bristol City before pulling up in agony.

Rigters, 24, joined from Blackburn until the end of the season, but Canaries boss Glenn Roeder told BBC Radio Norfolk his season could be over.

"I'd be very surprised if we see him again. When they pull up that sharp, it's like a hot knife in your leg."

The club is still waiting on a full assessment of Rigters' injury, but Roeder said it was likely to be some time before the player could return to first-team action.

"There'll be a serious amount of bleeding in the hamstring. Those can take five, six, seven weeks to recover.

"Especially the build he is, he's all power. But obviously we'll take care of him."
