Norwich’s Martin may miss season start

Russell Martin

Russell Martin has made 236 league appearances for Norwich and captained the side in the Premier League last season

Norwich City defender Russell Martin could miss the start of the season because of a back spasm.

The 30-year-old Scotland international has returned from Norwich’s pre-season tour of Austria to see a back specialist and potentially have an injection on the ongoing issue.

Norwich face Blackburn on Saturday, 6 August in their Championship opener.

“It [the first game of the season] is probably going to cut it fine for him,” boss Alex Neil told BBC Radio Norfolk.

“But I think determining how well he reacts to the injection will really give him a chance or not.”
