Team News: Krul and Pukki out of Coventry

27 November 2020

Teemu Pukki and Tim Krul have been added to Norwich City's lengthy injury list ahead of Saturday's game against Coventry City.

Both players came off with knocks during Tuesday's victory over Stoke City and Saturday's game against Coventry City comes too soon for the pair.

"Tim Krul has had a scan on his thigh injury and he will be out for three weeks," said Daniel Farke at his pre-match press conference. "It is not good news because we have to play without the best goalkeeper in the league."

"We will also be without Teemu Pukki with a hamstring strain. It is a minor strain but he could also miss the midweek game against Luton."

As well as Emi Buendia being suspended, that means the Canaries will be without eleven first-team players for the visit of the Sky Blues.

However, there was positive news on Marco Stiepermann who suffered a blow to his head against Stoke: "Some good news with Marco Stiepermann because it wasn't concussion on Tuesday and he is available.

Also, Lukas Rupp was left on the bench for the Stoke game but Farke says the midfielder is fit for the match.
