Norwich City midfield duo Alex Tettey and Andrew Surman are fresh injury doubts for Everton’s Premier League weekend visit.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

Chris Hughton delivered a mixed injury bulletin on Thursday afternoon at his Colney press call ahead of the Toffees’ visit.

“Apart from John Ruddy we don’t have too many injuries. We just have a couple we are assessing this week,” he said. “Tettey has not been able to train for the last couple of days. He took a little knock in training but it is not something we are concerned about. With Surman it is his knee and one of those ones he felt in training this week. He could have trained (on Thursday) because it had settled down. We have rested it and he might be fine to train on Friday.”

Anthony Pilkington (hamstring) and captain Grant Holt (back) have both been passed fit after missing City’s goalless draw against Fulham prior to their trip to Abu Dhabi. Holt was ruled out on the morning of the Cottagers’ game - which led one reporter today to question Hughton over a rumoured spat with his skipper.

“Absolutely not true and I am very, very surprised to hear that,” said the City boss. “He has been an integral part of what we have done - not only this season but over the last three seasons. He has got a great record. That is the reason why he is the club captain so any suggestions of that nature are way off the mark and I am not quite sure where they came from.

“He is available this weekend and it wasn’t going to be a long term injury. It was just a case of getting up that morning and feeling the back problem. It is something that happened so quickly. We tried to release it and perhaps if the game was the next day or two days time he would have been available for us.”

  • I have noticed that mjc75 is having a bit of a hard time from Steady on, but i don't beleive for one second that mjc75 is a canary caller, but i reckon Steady On is! Why would you listen to it? Its always the fans that don't really have a clue that talk on the show. I wish i could get to more games but being based in Windsor (Serving Soldier) i find it hard to get to many home games, but I'm often seen at the away games, does that make me a plastic supporter?? I think not as i have a job to do.

  • ...Sunny Bunny! From Blue Nosed Reindeer.....seems like a decent line up for the rest of us to pull to pieces....I'm not particularly interested in the defence. They would have to cope on their own if I were in charge . No more would you see Holt, or Hoolahan in OUR penalty area, I'd have them up-field around the centre circle All of the time. Not having to do a 100yard sprint to try to score at the other end, while the defence is taking it easy !

  • Wouldn't mind Tettey being out tbh, people seem to think he's been far better than Johnson but I completely disagree, and people said on canary call that Johnson couldn't make a 6 yard pass, he's probably our best passer of the ball and it's Tettey that lacks distribution. I think I prefer Johnson's and Howson's on the ball ability rather than Tettey's work rate and defensive ability.

  • Interesting choice of Fox, spanishcanary. Give Tetts a rest? Bit more creativity. Trouble is, David must be "rusty". I suspect we might start with a familiar line-up, then maybe change it a bit while there`s still time for substitutions to have an effect. Of course, if we`re OK there may be no need to change anything. Go for 3 points!!

  • ….If I was to pick the team for Saturday against Everton, I would after long consideration (14days) look at the strengths of the opposition. First of all they play in Blue (Yuk) so we should all wear Blue Boots, There is a mop haired bloke, over 6ft, who plays in their midfield, and turns up almost everywhere. I would nullify his abilities in the air by making our strongest midfielder, Hoolahan mark him. Baines who is their left back needs to be taken out of the game by Elliot Bennett. Leaving a hole for Fox to fill. The back 4 could remain as static as they normally do with a choice of 3 in goal. Johnson needs to be kept in midfield- anywhere in midfield- leaving a headache of who to place up front. The choice now comes down to who will fill the other 3 spots. I would put the 6 names in a hat. And draw 3 out just before kick off. Introduce them to each other, and put the other 3 on the bench. My hope would be that Becchio, Holt and Kamara came out of the hat and that would leave Jackson, Snodgrass, and Pilkington to sit the first 80 mins out. If the officials could be persuaded to look in the other direction , we may be able to sneak 2 of them on un-noticed, making 13 against 11 for the last 10mins. So if anyone thinks I do not give this matter serious thought, I hope this has answered their doubts....If you do have a view of the managers comfortable seat, look for a black shape under his feet . It may be his biggest FAN....

I`m concerned that promising players like E.Bennett, R.Bennett & J.Howson seem to have "stalled" in their development. Apropos of nothing, when I had a flat in Edinburgh, my `landlady` was the widow of a retired banker. She was VERY English and lived in Morningside. She once said "It is very nice to live in Scotland but it`s SO much nicer to be English". Her carpets were all English too; Axminster & Wilton. Or was that the name of the Bank? ;-)

I was stationed at Waterloo Camp just south of Fayid, and I feel sure that one our sergeants was called Stewpidsod. We had the lovely task of making our own football pitch made from mud collected from the Great Bitter Lake, flattened out and baked in the sun . Blimey! Ive just realised that was 60 years ago. Anyway Stew if you are related to that man, I suppoose time heals.
