Norwich striker Teemu Pukki played with broken toe for Leicester draw

Norwich striker Teemu Pukki went through the pain barrier on Saturday as he played the second half of his side's draw with Leicester with a broken toe.

Pukki put the Canaries ahead at King Power Stadium with a nerveless finish on 26 minutes but he suffered the injury later in the first half.

Tim Krul's own goal, 12 minutes after Pukki's opener, meant the points were shared.

"It looks like he has fractured his toe which is a worry," said Daniel Farke.

The Finland international was twice sent clear in the second half but he failed to pull away from his marker as he did for his goal, and he was tackled on both occasions.

However, he did not show any clear signs of the injury during the second 45 minutes and he was able to complete the match.
