Team News: Norwich City v Hull City

12 March 2019

Daniel Farke has no new injury concerns ahead of the visit of Hull City to Carrow Road on Wednesday night (7.45pm KO).

Speaking at his pre-match press conference on Tuesday, Farke said that everyone who was available for selection against Swansea last Friday is available on Wednesday.

On Monday evening, Michael McGovern, Felix Passlack, Philip Heise and Louis Thompson all featured for the Under-23s in their 2-2 draw with Stoke City at Colney.

Farke said the minutes were much-needed for the quartet and that he was pleased with how they fared.

"We didn't plan it in the long-term but the players were desperate to play. Philip's last game was winter pre-season so it was a good opportunity to get 90 for him and also for Felix.

"It was good for them to stay in the rhythm and I was pleased with their performances. Also Michael, it was important for him too as he wanted some minutes.

"It's really good news with Louis. It was a short-term decision to let him play as he's only been back in training for seven or eight days.

"He felt comfortable during the whole game and looked sharp. At 70 minutes, we didn't want to take too much risk so we brought him off."

Farke added that Thompson could be in contention for the visit to Rotherham United on Saturday, however, he realistically expects the midfielder to return after the international break.

"It's really good news for him that he was able to get some minutes. I won't use him tomorrow but he could be in my thoughts for the Rotherham game.

"But I expect him to be fully in contention after international break."
