Team News: Norwich City v West Bromwich Albion

10 August 2018

Daniel Farke delivered a brief injury update ahead of Norwich City's first home match of the 2018-19 season against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday (3pm).

Marco Stiepermann picked up a knock in the draw at Birmingham City last weekend and was subsequently withdrawn after an hour of the game.

However, Farke said: "Marco is okay. We were a bit concerned after the match but he's not too bad.

"It was a hit on the knee but it was just that. He trained on Tuesday and we aren't concerned for tomorrow."

However, there was slightly negative news on the fitness of Jamal Lewis. The full-back missed all of pre-season through injury and didn't feature at St. Andrew's last weekend.

"Jamal was training earlier on in the week but had a dead leg two days ago and he hasn't trained since.

"In addition, he missed most of pre-season so he won't be available for tomorrow."

Elsewhere, Jordan Rhodes suffered a knock in training this week but is fit for selection and Ivo Pinto is fit and ready to go after recovering from his injury which ruled him out of the whole of pre-season.
