Fulham boss Scott Parker says the ankle injury sustained by Aleksandar Mitrovic in the win at Hull City ‘doesn’t look great’.
The Serbian striker was stretchered off with ten minutes to play at the KCOM after seeming to twist his ankle when he went up for a header. Parker will await the results of scans on the injury in the coming week, but is not optimistic.
Fulham are without too many natural replacements for Mitrovic, who has scored 18 goals in 26 appearances in the Championship this season. Aboubakar Kamara replaced the former Newcastle forward in the one league campaign he has missed so far, whilst teenager Jay Stansfield was on the bench today after making his debut against Aston Villa in the FA Cup last week.
Parker told the press after the final whistle:
‘It’s too early to say. We’ll scan him and see where we are. He’s injured himself pretty badly. It doesn’t look great at this present moment in time. [If] you lose someone who’s scored 18 goals, it’s never going to be easy,’
