Fulham forward breaks leg in win

5:41 am on 12 September 2010

The Fulham striker Bobby Zamora suffered a broken leg in the club's 2-1 Premier League football victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The forward suffered the injury in a challenge with Wolves midfielder Karl Henry after 27 minutes and left the pitch on a stretcher after receiving oxygen.

The injury is a huge personal blow to Zamora who missed out on a possible place in England's World Cup finals squad after needing surgery on an Achilles injury that dogged him in the last few weeks of last season.

Fulham, who had drawn their first three games of the season, looked set for a fourth until new signing Mousa Dembele grabbed his second goal of the game in the last minute after Jelle van Damme had given Wolves an early lead.
