Domingos Quina will need to be assessed to learn the extent of the groin injury he suffered during the Carabao Cup game at Everton on Tuesday night. 

The Portuguese youngster was forced out of the game early on after picking up an unfortunate injury when he slipped and hurt himself. 

Head coach Quique Sanchez Flores described the player as 'unlucky' and said he had been impressed with his brief performance. 

"He was unlucky because he slid on the pitch and he felt something at that moment," he said. 

"It is completely unlucky for him and completely unlucky for the team with him because we are really happy with him and he's a very good player for us.

"I think the medical staff will check the player tomorrow and we will see what happens."

Sanchez Flores made eight changes from the side that drew 0-0 with Bournemouth at the weekend and claimed those who came in would be important for the future of the club. 

The head coach said getting game time for those players was high on his list of priorities during the match. 

"For me today it was important to see Quina, to see Prodl, to see Foulquier, to see many players who are part of the squad but not playing too many minutes, for me it was the idea," he said. 

"With this part of the squad, if we are able to win, perfect, if we are not able to win, we need to accept and go for the next match next weekend.

"We need all of them in our situation. All of them, they're important and they're pushing and working really well during the week, so they deserve to play. 

"Today, four, five, six, maybe seven players, they get some confidence for the future and we will need them for the future."
