Norwich City will be without John Ruddy and Martin Olsson for Tuesday's Championship home test against Bristol City.

Alex Neil confirmed on Monday lunchtime the duo are also set to miss this weekend's East Anglian derby pending the result of scans on Ruddy's groin and Olsson's hamstring injuries.

The duo were forced to depart early during Saturday's 0-0 home opener against Sheffield Wednesday. Graham Dorrans (groin) and Jacob Murphy (hamstring) are also set to miss the Robins' visit.

'They are progressing and getting better, I'm not sure they will make this game though,' Neil told Norwich City TV. 'Jacob had some issues with his hamstring after the Blackburn game and unfortunately it's not settled down quickly enough.

'We've had scans done (on Ruddy and Olsson) and we should get the results of them soon. I doubt they will be available for tomorrow's game. I don't think it will a long-term problem for either, I think it will be a couple of weeks and nothing more than that.'
