TEAM NEWS

Neil Adams confirmed the absence of Wes Hoolahan (ankle) at his pre-match press conference on Monday, with the full extent of the Republic of Ireland international’s injury likely to become clearer in the next few days.

There was a more positive update on the fitness of Jos Hooiveld and Kyle Lafferty (both knee), who trained with the team on Monday and therefore are both likely to be available for selection.

Ryan Bennett and Mark Bunn (both ankle) are ruled out of the match at Carrow Road.
