Team News: Norwich City v Millwall

9 November 2018

Norwich City have no new major injury doubts ahead of Saturday’s encounter at Carrow Road against Millwall.

Daniel Farke said he is glad that for the first time in a few weeks he has no new injury scares and most players available for selection.

The City boss said Todd Cantwell is available to play after missing the Canaries' last few games due to a hamstring injury.

Farke said: “Todd is much better now as he been able to train with us for the last few days. He was not able to train at the start of the week, and may not be ready for the starting line-up, but he’s available tomorrow.”

Farke was also given a slight injury scare at the start of the week after both Timm Klose and Mario Vrancic picked up knocks.

“Timm Klose had a knock on his ankle and it was pretty swollen, but he has been able to train the last two days with us," he said. “He’s better now than he was at the start of the week, so he isn’t a major doubt, but we have a little concern for him.

“Mario Vrancic had a problem with his calf which is understandable as he played two games in a short period for the first time in several weeks.”

Marco Stiepermann has had a full week’s training after recovering from tonsillitis. 

Farke said: “Marco was able to train; it was good for him to have a week to recover after missing the last few games with tonsillitis.”

Farke also gave a positive update on the progress of both long-term absences Grant Hanley and Kenny McLean, who have missing since before the last international break.

“Grant is back in training, he may have been a topic if Timm Klose had been unavailable for the game, but we now know we don’t have to risk him. It’s good to have Grant back.

“Kenny McLean has started to do some running on the pitches; he’s started to do some change of direction with the coaches. He won’t return to team training during the international break, but we hope to have him back pretty soon after.”
