The latest squad news ahead of SaturdayJONNY Howson looks set to be ruled out of the Preston game this weekend with his ankle injury.
The midfielder hasn't featured for the Canaries since before this month's international break, and Alex Neil says his absence is felt in the team.
"Jonny's going to be out I think. He is a big player for us, somebody who's done extremely well for me since I've been here," Neil told Norwich City TV.
"It's a bit of blow that he's not available. There not really a timeline at the moment, but it's frustrating because we want to get him back."
City's central midfield options are reduced further with Youssouf Mulumbu continuing his recovery from a fractured foot, while winger Matt Jarvis (knee) is a long-term absentee.
