13 City players currently away from Carrow Road

HARRY Toffolo completed the full match for Rotherham United as the Millers' run of back-to-back victories came to an end with a home defeat against Wolves in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday.

Having gone behind to former Canary loanee James Henry's early header, the hosts levelled when Toffolo's shot was diverted into the net by Joe Newell.

Wolves struck again though, with Danny Batth's goal shortly before half-time ultimately settling the contest.

Fellow City player Tony Andreu, who is also on loan at Rotherham, wasn't included in their matchday squad.

Elsewhere in the second tier, Elliott Bennett played 90 minutes as ten-man Bristol City were beaten 2-0 by Blackburn Rovers at Ashton Gate.

The home side saw Nathan Baker dismissed early in the second half, before Grant Hanley put Rovers in front soon after.

Their win was put beyond doubt with just four minutes remaining when Ben Marshall converted from the penalty-spot following Marcus Olsson being brought down in the box.

Bristol City are now outside the relegation-zone on goal-difference, having last won at the start of November.

Another side kept out of the bottom three on goal-difference are MK Dons, who went down 2-0 at Brentford.

Josh Murphy was substituted after 53 minutes, as goals from Lasse Vibe and Alan Judge saw the Bees claim victory.

No game this weekend so off to watch twinny @joshmurphy65 for @MKDonsFC! Good luck to twin and his team 💥💫👍🏽

Meanwhile, Gary Hooper played the final 15 minutes for Sheffield Wednesday against Derby County on Sunday, coming off the bench to replace Lucas Joao.

The forward was unable to provide a decisive moment however, with a game of few chances ending in a 0-0 draw at Hillsborough.

Michael Turner was absent for the Owls with an ongoing injury problem suffered earlier this season.

In the Vanarama National League, Cameron Norman played 90 minutes as Woking secured an impressive 3-1 win against high-flying Lincoln City.

A brace from Dan Holman, in addition to a further goal from Joe Quigley, moved The Cards to within six points of the play-off places.

Further down the footballing pyramid, goalkeeper Ben Killip kept his second successive clean sheet to help Lowestoft Town to a 1-0 win over Alfreton in the Vanarama National League North.

The young stopped acquitted himself well in difficult conditions at Crown Meadow as he continues to impress for The Trawler Boys.

In Scotland, Carlton Morris' Hamilton Academical were set to visit Celtic Park, only for Storm Desmond to see the game postponed.

Finally, Ricky van Wolfswinkel missed out on Real Betis' matchday squad for their 1-1 La Liga draw with Celta Vigo on Saturday.

The forward had played 78 minutes in a 2-0 Copa Del Rey victory over Sporting Gijon three days earlier.
