Team News: Birmingham v City

23 December 2017

Norwich City may have to do without defender Grant Hanley for their Boxing Day trip to Birmingham after his early withdrawal against Brentford on Friday.

Hanley was replaced at half-time by Christoph Zimmermann, having suffered a knee injury in the build-up to The Bees' second goal.

Speaking to the media post-match, Head Coach Daniel Farke said: "Grant has a swollen knee and had no feeling in it at half-time.

"We hope it isn't too bad. We will see how it develops."

Cameron Jerome and Wes Hoolahan may move into contention for a place in the squad, depending on their respective recoveries from minor knocks.

Longer-term absentees Louis Thompson and Matt Jarvis remain unavailable, while James Husband and Steven Naismith have returned to full training.
