MATT JARVIS AMONG SENIOR PROS SET TO FACE SWANSEA

5 December 2016

Winger has been out since the start of the season

MATT Jarvis is set to make his long-awaited return from injury in Tuesday's Checkatrade Trophy game against Swansea City at Carrow Road (7pm).

The winger, absent since undergoing knee surgery in the summer, is one of a number of senior players set to feature for Dmitri Halajko's Under-21s side in the last 32 tie.

Alongside Jarvis, defenders Steven Whittaker and Timm Klose and midfielders Youssouf Mulumbu, Sergi Canos and Josh Murphy are also in line to be included against the Swans.

Under competition rules, invited Category One Academy teams such as the Canaries are required to field six Under-21 players in their starting eleven.

In progressing through to the first knockout stage, City netted a competition-high 15 goals in their Southern Group F victories over Peterborough United, Barnet and MK Dons.

Tickets are on sale for Tuesday's game at Carrow Road, priced at £5 for adults and £1 for Under-18s. These tickets can be purchased ONLINE, by calling 0844 826 1902 or visiting the Club's ticket offices across the city.

An official matchday programme, which includes a giant poster of City star Sergi Canos, will be available for just £2.
