Surman setback rocks Canaries

03 December 2010 03:00
Norwich have suffered an injury blow ahead of their trip to Derby. Midfielder Andrew Surman will not play again in 2010 after suffering a recurrence of a knee problem which had previously kept him out for three months. The 24-year-old had started the last two games for the Canaries but is now back in the treatment room. Korey Smith came on as substitute in the second half of the 4-1 derby rout of Ipswich following injury and suffered no problems so could be in the frame to start. Long-term injury victims Adam Drury, Steven Smith, Stephen Hughes, and Zak Whitbread will play no part. The Rams have confirmed the fixture will go ahead despite a barrage of snow and ice in recent days.
