Team News: Norwich City v Wolverhampton Wanderers

20 December 2019

Ben Godfrey will miss the next six weeks of Premier League action for Norwich City after sustaining an lateral collateral ligament (LCL) tear.

The 21-year-old centre back picked up the knock in the first-half of the Leicester City draw and will not return to action until at least City’s trip to Newcastle United on February 1.

To place a positive spin on the news, Farke added that Godfrey does not require surgery which would have resulted in a much longer spell on the sidelines.

In terms of replacements, Farke says he has plenty of options including club skipper Grant Hanley and midfielders Alex Tettey and Ibrahim Amadou.

Hanley has been missing with a groin problem since September but Farke insists the Scot is in his thoughts for a starting berth against Wolves.

Farke finished his injury bulletin by confirming that Teemu Pukki is fit and available for the weekend.

City feared Pukki had suffered a broken toe at the King Power Stadium, but it turns out his injury is not as bad as first anticipated.

He said: “Teemu is available. The toe wasn't broken, it was just bruised. It was painful for him but the swelling has gone down.”
