Winger to make long-awaited return to action

ELLIOTT Bennett is set to play a part for Mark Robson's Under-21s side when they play Liverpool at Anfield on Friday (7pm).

The winger has been missing with a serious knee injury since the opening day of the season but resumed full training a fortnight ago.

City boss Chris Hughton says he'll be delighted to see Bennett back in action.

"It’s a good opportunity for him, he’s very excited about it," he said when speaking to Norwich City TV.

"We thought long and hard about our last Under-21s game, but it came just a little soon in terms of getting the minutes that we really wanted for him.

"He’s trained very well in the last few weeks – he’s had no problems with the injury itself right through its rehab. It’s good to get him out there again."
