TEAM NEWS: CITY v BURTON ALBION

23 September 2016

The latest squad news ahead of Saturday

ALEX Neil will make a late call on Alex Tettey when it comes to picking his squad for Saturday's visit of Burton Albion (3pm).

The midfielder missed the victories over Nottingham Forest and Everton with a hip injury sustained during the 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic.

Neil told Norwich City TV on Friday: "Alex will be touch and go for the game. He's slow recovering from his knock, and we'll see how that goes."

Youssouf Mulumbu (foot) is a doubt, but Nelson Oliveira could make a first league appearance for the Club after starting at Goodison Park on Tuesday, though Matt Jarvis remains a long-term absentee with a knee injury.

City's boss admits his selection choices are as hard as ever after the impressive cup win over the Toffees in midweek.

He added: "It refreshes people's minds about some of the guys who've not been playing recently and how good they can be.

"There are always tough decisions, but we have good momentum at the moment. We've won four games on the bounce, and the players deserve a lot of credit for that.

"The last thing you want to do is leave any player out who has done well for you, and that's the difficulty I've got this week."
