The latest squad news ahead of Saturday's game

ALAN Irvine will welcome Timm Klose back to the fold this weekend but is set to be without two of his most experienced midfielders.

Wes Hoolahan and Alex Tettey have picked up injuries in training and won't be risked for Saturday's trip to Elland Road to face Leeds United (3pm).

"Unfortunately we won't have Wes or Alex," Irvine told Norwich City TV on Friday. "Wes has a hip injury and Alex has a recurrence on his back injury, so that's disappointing.

"I wouldn't think they'd be done though. I'd expect them both to train next week and be in contention for the QPR game.

"Timm's in the squad. He's trained this week and done well, so we're pleased to have him back."

Michael McGovern won't travel with his teammates after being granted compassionate leave following the passing his mother.

"Very sadly Michael's mum passed away," said Irvine. "He is obviously back with his family. Quite simply I've told Michael to take whatever time he needs off because that's much more important and our thoughts are with his family."

Matt Jarvis (knee) won't feature this season while Louis Thompson is a long-term absentee after undergoing Achilles surgery in January.
