Team news: Wolves v City

20 February 2018

Daniel Farke says there are no fresh injury concerns ahead of Norwich City’s trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday night.

The visit to Molineux is part of a busy week for Farke’s men with it being just three days after the derby draw with Ipswich Town and three days prior to hosting Bolton Wanderers at Carrow Road on Saturday.

But Farke said he has no new injury issues ahead of the trip to the league leaders, with Moritz Leitner and Timm Klose having recovered from knocks picked up prior to the Ipswich game.

“Everything is okay and we have no new big injury problems,” said the City Boss, speaking in his pre-match press conference. “It was an emotional derby and obviously there were some hits.

"We have some tired legs also with it being three games in six days. There has been lots of intensity with first the derby and Wolves this week.

“But in personal terms, we are in a good position. Moritz and Timm have recovered better than we expected. Moritz has played two 90 minutes with lots of intensity but he and Timm have reacted much better than we expected. They are available for tomorrow.”

Farke did admit however that he will look to rotate his squad, taking into consideration the team’s busy schedule.

“We will rotate on some positions because some fresh legs are needed on the pitch, with next the home game in mind.

“We will try to have a team of players on the pitch to be successful. We have a lot of competition for places and we had lots of options for the Ipswich game.

“I’m not too concerned; we just need to find the right decisions on who needs a rest. I’ve got the feeling we can change things without losing our focus and shape.”
