Nugent Fractures Cheekbone In U23 Victory

22 December 2016

Big defender taken to hospital after collision

Crewe Alexandra defender Ben Nugent suffered a fractured cheekbone in the Under 23's 4-3 victory over Barnsley on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old was struck by a stray elbow in the early stages of the match & was taken to hospital & diagnosed with the injury.

It's currently unclear how long Nugent will be out of action for, but he's now a huge doubt for the Boxing Day & New Years Eve clashes.

Everton loan full-back James Yates came off the bench for Nugent & went on to score twice as Alex Morris' side thrice came from behind to win.
