Team News: Cardiff City v Norwich City

27 August 2018

Daniel Farke says he expects to make changes to his starting eleven for Tuesday's Carabao Cup Round Two tie at Cardiff City.

However, the City head coach intends to name a strong side in the aim of making it through to Round Three.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Farke said: "All is good, we have no new injuries. We're thinking about several changes for tomorrow.

"There's been a lot of load for a few lads. Maybe lads like Timm Klose, he's played a lot, and Teemu Pukki and Jordan Rhodes. Grant Hanley, Ivo Pinto and Jamal Lewis have all missed most of pre-season.

"But we have lots of competiton at the moment and I like it a lot. We will try everything to go through. We want to pick a strong team."

Alex Tettey missed the weekend defeat to Leeds but Farke confirmed the experienced midfielder will travel with the squad.

"Alex Tettey will 100% travel with us," Farke added. "I think to give him another game off before the Ipswich game would be too long without a game. He's in good shape.

Farke ended his team news update by confirming Michael McGovern will start in goal and Mario Vrancic will not travel to south Wales.
