Speaking about Dowell’s injury, Farke said the club are worried but will have to wait and see how the results turn out. He said:

“We are a bit worried but let us wait for the results of the scan. It was an unbelievably hard knock.

 “We don’t have to speak about the foul. My worry is Kieran is out for a while. It was pretty swollen and all our fingers are cross but it is too early to say how long. If it just a hit or a bruise not so long. The foot, ankle area. A tough hit.”
