Team news: Forest v City

20 November 2017

Tom Trybull will miss Norwich City’s trip to Nottingham Forest after picking up a back strain against Barnsley.

Midfielder Trybull, who hasn’t missed a game since his league debut against Birmingham City in early September, joins fellow defensive midfielder Alex Tettey on the sidelines.

“Tom Trybull is not available,” Daniel Farke told the media on Monday lunchtime. “He got several hits in his back against Barnsley and he has a strain. The doctor says he’ll probably be out for seven to 10 days. We’ll probably have to do without him for the next two games, although there’s a very small possibility he might be available for Preston on Saturday.”

Left-back James Husband is also out for a couple of weeks after feeling some pain in his groin against Barnsley, while Steven Naismith is still feeling discomfort following an ankle injury.

Farke admits the series of injuries has meant he hasn’t been able to give James Maddison as many breaks as he would ideally like. “I had planned to give him a few more breaks because he’s still young. He’s done brilliantly for us and is really consistent, but to be at your most creative you have to be 100% and be full of energy.

“I would have preferred to give him some more breaks, but at the moment we have some injury problems in the centre of the pitch and at the moment there’s no chance of giving him a break. But he’s so professional in his recreation and he looks after himself really well, and I’m full of respect for his working philosophy.”

Alex Pritchard, who returned to team training last week after ankle surgery during pre-season, travelled with the Under-23s to face Wolves on Monday evening. But Farke says he has to manage the playmaker’s comeback carefully.

“Alex Pritchard is burning to play and wants to step on the pitch,” he said. “He looks good in training, but it’s early days so we have to handle him well and he will get minutes with the under-23s.

“The temptation is big to bring him back in – he’s a key player for our offence and one of the best players in the Championship. He can make a difference in games with his creativity, and he’s full of ability and he brings goals and assists. But I have to be patient and we have to be careful with his load, because we want to bring him in when he’s 100%. Anything less than that won’t help him and it won’t help us and we want to make sure we don’t risk injuring him again by playing him when he’s not 100%.

"We look forward to the day he returns and he’s really hungry to be involved.”

Match Reports

City edged out by Forest in close match

21 November 2017

Norwich City were beaten 1-0 by Nottingham Forest in a closely-fought Sky Bet Championship encounter on Tuesday night.

City had good opportunities through Marley Watkins and Nelson Oliveira either side of the interval but the difference between the two sides came on 77 minutes when Daryl Murphy stole in at the near post to divert a Mustapha Carayol cross past Angus Gunn and into the net.

Daniel Farke made three changes to the side which drew with Barnsley on Saturday. Two were enforced with Tom Trybull (injured) and James Husband (suspended) being replaced by Harrison Reed and Watkins. The other saw Wes Hoolahan come in for Josh Murphy. On the substitutes’ bench, there were spots for Marcel Franke and Todd Cantwell.

City went closest to opening the scoring on 12 minutes. Hoolahan dinked a precise pass over the Forest defence and, despite his first touch taking him away from goal, Watkins managed to dig out an effort but the ball trickled inches wide of the post.

Then just minutes later, Forest had their best opportunity of the opening half an hour. Murphy managed to latch onto a long pass and cut the ball back to Kieran Dowell whose effort was saved superbly by Gunn at his near post.

Then on 25 minutes, Murphy managed to steal a march on Klose in the box and, after a cross from Barrie McKay, he headed over from a good position.

The two sides were restricted to half-chances for the remainder of the half, with Watkins having a shot deflected into the arms of Jordan Smith on 41 minutes and Murphy forcing Gunn into a straightforward save two minutes later.

City began the second half on the frontfoot and were almost rewarded for their superiority on 51 minutes. The referee brought play back after a foul on Oliveira and the City striker stepped up to whip a brilliant free-kick towards the bottom corner – fortunately for Forest, Smith was there to tip it round the post.

Mark Warburton’s men had rarely threatened in the second half up until the introduction of Carayol on 69 minutes and the Gambian international’s influence proved key for the hosts when, just eight minutes later, they took the lead. His low cross from the right was met by Murphy sliding in at the near post and the Irishman guided his effort past Gunn.

City’s best chance to equalise came in stoppage time when Ivo Pinto found Oliveira with a yard of space in the box but the striker’s effort rolled across the face of goal and wide, with the score finishing 1-0 to the hosts.
