Mixed injury news for Panthers. Fisher escapes after horrible crash at Coventry but Greenwood has a fractured collarbone

Peterborough number one Ryan Fisher looks to have escaped serious injury in a frightening Friday crash.

However there was not such good news for reserve Oliver Greenwood, who has a damaged collar bone

Fisher was forced to withdraw from his Elite League club Coventry’s narrow home victory over Birmingham last night after a heat six spill.

Fisher suffered a shoulder injury when he clipped the machine of Brummies guest Josh Grajczonek and both men were flung into the fence.

But he has today delivered an upbeat medical bulletin to Peterborough co-boss Trevor Swales, who said: “Touch wood it looks like ‘Fish’ will be okay.

“He hurt his shoulder in the crash but thankfully it doesn’t seem too serious.

But reserve talent Greenwood suffered a fractured collarbone when crashing during a guest appearance for Premier League rivals Newcastle in their narrow home defeat against Edinburgh on Sunday.

Incredibly Greenwood completed another ride after his spill, but hospital checks later revealed the full extent of the damage.

‘TC Harrison’ Panthers co-boss Blayne Scroggins said: “I’m gutted for young Ollie.

“He has already had more than his fair share of bad injuries in his career and this is another one.

“It goes without saying that we wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him back in action for Panthers soon.”

Scroggins is now working to draft in a guest for the first leg of the club’s KO cup quarter-final against Plymouth at the East of England Showground Tuesday.
