Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup says he fears the worst after Nathan Dyer was stretchered off with a suspected broken ankle during his side's 1-1 draw with Norwich this afternoon. Dyer opened the scoring but was then rushed to hospital after a clash with Norwich defender Sebatien Bassong.

"Things like this are part of football, even though we don't know how bad it is yet, but everybody could see it was not good when you get carried out like that" Laudrup said.

"We will wait to see the X-ray and then in a couple of days have an MRI scan to know if it is bad or really bad. Let's wait and see, hoping that if it is bad, it is not too bad."
