The Football League Paper - - FA CUP QUARTER-FINALS -

NOR­WICH boss Alex Neil in­sists the loss of striker Lewis Grab­ban will not af­fect the Ca­naries’ push for pro­mo­tion.

The 27-year-old, who has five goals from his last five Cham­pi­onship games, un­der­went surgery on his an­kle on Thurs­day.

Grab­ban has scored 12 goals in to­tal this term and net­ted his ul­ti­mate in last Sun­day’s 2-0 derby win against Ip­swich.

“It’s a huge blow, but we’ve got a big squad and we’re now look­ing for the other guys to step up to the plate,” said Neil, who is un­sure whether Grab­ban will re­turn this term.“We got his an­kle scanned and it showed up that he needed to have it looked at.”
