The latest squad news ahead of SaturdayALEX Neil says he will have to make last-minute calls on Louis Thompson and Youssouf Mulumbu ahead of Saturday's trip to Derby County (3pm).
The suspension of Graham Dorrans and an ankle problem for Jonny Howson has left Neil light on options in central midfield, with Thompson and Mulumbu each recovering from injuries of their own.
"They've done a bit training this week but unfortunately neither of them have had a massive amount of game time," the Canaries' boss explained to Norwich City TV on Friday.
"We should be covered in that area, hopefully."
Ivo Pinto is 'progressing well' in training according to Neil, but this weekend's match still comes too soon for the Portuguese full-back.
City will be also be without Martin Olsson, who will serve his one-match suspension after being sent off for deliberate handball in the second minute of the defeat at Queens Park Rangers a week ago.
Matt Jarvis is continuing his recovery from summer knee surgery, but the winger won't be included at the iPro Stadium.
