Ouch! Reading striker Nelson Oliveira has thanked medical staff after he suffered horrible facial injuries in a clash during his home debut.
The 27-year-old, who is on loan from Norwich, was left with two deep cuts and a suspected broken nose after being caught by the boot of defender Tyrone Mings during a goalless Championship draw with Aston Villa.
Gruesome photographs of Oliveira’s injuries emerged over the weekend but it has now been confirmed that Mings will escape any retrospective action because the incident was not seen by match officials.
