The latest squad news ahead of Tuesday

ALEX Neil will make late calls on the fitness of Alex Tettey (groin) and Cameron Jerome (back) for Tuesday night's Sky Bet Championship game against Aston Villa at Carrow Road.

The duo were both forced off early during last month's 1-0 defeat at Derby County, and have been absent from the Canaries' first team since.

Speaking exclusively to Norwich City TV on Monday, Neil said: "They shouldn't be too far away.

"They've done a bit of training so we'll have a look at them over the course of the next 24 hours."

Meanwhile, Steven Naismith (hamstring) is likely to be in the squad after recovering from a 'minor' problem which kept him out of Saturday's defeat at Barnsley.

Louis Thompson definitely misses out, while Michael McGovern could come back into contention after returning to training.

Matt Jarvis
remains short of match fitness having now recovered from surgery undergone in the summer.
