Team News: Norwich City v Wigan Athletic

28 September 2018

Daniel Farke has no new injury concerns ahead of the visit of Wigan Athletic to Carrow Road this Saturday (3pm).

The match this weekend is City's fifth in just 14 days but the Canaries Head Coach says everyone who featured on Tuesday at Wycombe is available for selection.

Alex Tettey and Todd Cantwell were both left out of the match at Adams Park but Farke said they are both available for selection this weekend.

"Alex Tettey had a swollen knee after QPR, he has had lots of load recently. But he's available for tomorrow," he said.

"Todd had a dead leg after QPR. We didn't want to risk him. But he's been back in team training since Wednesday and therefore available for tomorrow."

Ben Marshall has missed all action since the international break through illness and he racked up some important minutes for the Under-23s on Friday.

"Ben has missed a lot of football over the past 6-7 weeks. It was important for him to get some minutes and be fully fit, like Ivo Pinto last week. So we felt it was important he got some minutes for the Under-23s.

To finish, Farke issued updates on the fitness of Kenny McLean and Onel Hernandez.

"Kenny is still not back in team training but Onel is making good progress in his individual rehab. We hope to have him back for the middle of next week, perhaps back for Stoke [next Saturday].

"He's been doing some interval running but now needs to work on change of direction and high-speed running and then obviously work with the ball."
