Team News: Cantwell available for Birmingham

19 October 2020

Daniel Farke has declared Todd Cantwell fit for Norwich City's latest Championship match against Birmingham City on Tuesday night.

Cantwell missed the Canaries' victory over Rotherham United on Saturday with a minor injury but he trained on Sunday and Farke says the England youth international is back in contention.

However, there wasn't such positive news on the fitness of Christoph Zimmermann with the City centre-back set to miss out once again with a calf problem.

"The plan was to bring him into team training on Sunday but he was still symptomatic so that's a negative surprise," said Farke at his pre-match press conference.

"The new plan is to bring him back on Wednesday so he's available for the Wycombe game."

Oliver Skipp was on the receiving end of a nasty tackle on Saturday, ending up in the culprit, Rotherham's Angus MacDonald, receiving a straight red card.

However, the Tottenham Hotspur loanee should be fine for the game against the Blues.

"Oliver Skipp will train with us this afternoon and is available for tomorrow. Thank god, the challenge was on his quad and not his knee," added Farke.
