Live coverage of Norwich City’s pre-match press conference ahead of their fixture at Wigan Athletic.

Our reporters will bring you all the latest from Norwich City manager Alex Neil’s press conference as the Canaries prepare to face Wigan Athletic in the Championship at the DW Stadium.

Alex Tettey’s 10th yellow card of the season has activated the two-game ban which has been looming over the Norwich City midfielder since early January.

The Norway international had been desperate to avoid the suspension, with Youssouf Mulumbu away at the African Cup of Nations and fellow central midfielders Graham Dorrans (knee) and Louis Thompson (Achilles tendon) out injured.

Mulumbu returned last week but wasn’t included on the bench at Cardiff on Saturday due to a thigh strain but is likely to be needed at Wigan on Tuesday night.

“We hope so,” City boss Alex Neil said of the midfielder’s potential return. “It will probably be touch and go with Youssouf because he’s not quite ready, hence the reason why he wasn’t here.”

Steve Naismith also missed the 1-0 win in Wales with a hamstring strain and remains an injury doubt.

Neil added: “He’ll be the same as Youssouf, touch and go.”
