Team News: Millwall v Norwich City

1 March 2019

Alex Tettey is available for Saturday’s game against Millwall after returning to team training last week.

The midfielder picked up a ligament injury to his ankle in the first half of City's game against Preston North End, which has saw him miss two wins against Bolton Wanderers and Bristol.

Speaking at today's press conference, Daniel Farke said: “Alex Tettey has been back since last Sunday and is available for Saturday. He was out for nearly two weeks so not too long, but we have to keep in mind that he was back for Preston [North End] and was out for a few weeks before that.

“He is an experienced player and doesn’t need much in order to get back into the rhythm so he is a topic.

Timm [Klose] and Moritz [Leitner] have had another week under their belt back in team training, so in general we are in a good position.”

Despite picking up no new injuries in last Saturday’s victory against Bristol City, the Canaries will be without both Todd Cantwell and Ivo pinto, who suffered minor injuries in training this week.

Farke said: “During the game there were no injuries and we’ve had a really decent week. Sadly, there were two injuries during in the week.

“The first injury was Ivo Pinto, he had a hit on his bone on his feet, he had to calm down the load but will return to training on Sunday, but won’t be available for tomorrow.

“Todd Cantwell also has a little strain in his quad and sadly is not a topic for tomorrow, but we hope to have him back as soon as possible and hopefully at some point next week.”

The boss also provided some positive news for long-term absence Louis Thompson, who is set to return to team training after picking up an injury while featuring for the Under-23s in January.

“Some good news with Louis Thompson, he will join us in team training next week, but he is not a topic for this week," Farke said. "For Carlton Morris it will take a bit longer.
