Striker Kyle Lafferty and centre-back Jos Hooiveld have trained today ahead of Norwich City’s return to Championship action against Leeds United tomorrow night.

The duo both missed Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Fulham with knee complaints but should be available for Tuesday’s Carrow Road clash.

“Both trained today and both trained for the full session, which is good, so barring any reaction I would hope those two would be available.

“Other than that, a full bill of health, everyone trained. Sometimes we rest one or two who have had ongoing injuries throughout their career but we’re expecting to have everyone available that we know about.”

Adams also revealed that Wes Hoolahan’s ankle injury may not be as bad as first feared, having been carried from the pitch in visible pain at Craven Cottage.

“Wes has damaged his ankle ligaments, a timescale on that we are unsure,” Adams said. “He’s had a scan, he didn’t feel it was as bad the following day as he was probably expecting, which is some sort of a bonus.

“But once the medical staff have spoken to the experts they’ll put a time-frame on it but obviously he’s gone over on his ankle and he’s come off and he knew straight away he’s done something in there but we’re keeping our fingers crossed it’s not as bad as maybe we all first feared.

“But until the medical people have got together and decided exactly how bad it is, we can’t put a timescale on it.”

  • Since Wos Hoolihan is injured, it seems a good idea to bring back Jes Hoolaveld. No Cafu at CB. No Bambi at RB. No p!$$!ng about - 3 points, please. 1p5wich are just behind us - Oh yes they are!

  • I'd love to see Lafferty and Hooper together tomorrow - if the former's fit and the latter's up for it. PLEASE play Cafu @ RB Neil.
