The latest squad news from Colney

ALEX Neil looks set to make a 'late call' on whether two members of his playing squad will be fit to face Chelsea at Carrow Road on Tuesday night.

Both Sebastien Bassong and Wes Hoolahan were absent for the Canaries late 1-0 defeat to league leaders Leicester City at the weekend.

Neil told Norwich City TV on Monday: "We'll see how both of them respond to doing a bit of training and then we can make a decision from there.

"The rest of the players will be fine. They put a lot of energy and effort into the Leicester game but we've got two important matches coming up.

"Firstly we've got Chelsea on Tuesday night and then a huge game (against Swansea City) on Saturday as well, so we need to be prepared."

Neil later confirmed at his pre-match press conference that Andre Wisdom (knee) will miss out again on Tuesday.

Patrick Bamford, meanwhile, is ineligible to face his parent club.
