PIOTR Swiderski suffered a suspected broken hand as the Ipswich Evening Star Witches suffered a disastrous night at Foxhall Stadium.

Swiderski crashed while practising after last night's home defeat to Lakeside, with most of the Foxhall faithful already on their way home.

They'd already witnessed a Jarek Hampel-less home side lose their third home league meeting of the season and if that wasn't bad enough, they are waking up this morning to the news their flying No.1 star man Swiderski could be out of action for three to four weeks.

Swiderski had just rattled up his highest-ever Elite League score of 18+1 points in his side's 42-51 defeat to the Hammers and was the shining light on a drizzly and humid evening.
