Team News: Zimmermann and Martin back in contention for Millwall

Christoph Zimmermann and Josh Martin are back in the mix for Norwich City's match against Millwall on Tuesday night (7pm UK).

Zimmermann has been absent for almost a month with a calf problem and Martin was ruled out of Saturday victory against Bristol City.

However, the duo are now fit and reday for a return to action. Speaking at his pre-match press conference, City head coach Daniel Farke said: "The situation looks much better. Christoph has been back in team training since Wednesday and has had no setbacks.

"Josh Martin trained yesterday and they are both topics for the gameday squad, not the starting line-up."

However, Xavi Quintilla will once again miss the game with the same issue that ruled him out of the weekend.

The only fresh injury doubt for Millwall is Kenny McLean who sat out of training on Sunday with a stiff back. Farke will make a late decision on the fitness of his Scottish midfielder.

Elsewhere, Farke gave an update on the fitness of his long-term absentees Onel Hernandez, Kieran Dowell and Sam Byram.

"We won't see all three before Christmas. Sam has been out since February and had a complicated surgery over the summer. We don't want to take a risk with him so we will see him early next year.

"Onel is still suffering with pain from his scar after surgery. He's doing rehab work but he's still steps away from being back running.

"Kieran is starting to run a little bit but I don't expect him to be a topic before Chrisrtmas. I expect both of them to return in January."
