The Norwegian international midfielder had a brief three-minute spell as a second-half substitute before an innocuous tackle saw him suffer an ankle injury.

After being withdrawn, Ulvestad went to hospital for precautionary x-rays on the injury and those scans have revealed that he has a twisted ankle that will require a period of rest.
