Mark Bunn injury lay-off a short one as Steven Whittaker is set to feature for Norwich City Under-21s

City goalkeeper Mark Bunn will be sidelined for a few days after picking up a knock in training.

Declan Rudd replaced Bunn on the bench for Saturday's Premier League victory over Arsenal, after his stint on international duty with England Under-21s.

Manager Chris Hughton explained: 'Mark just picked up a slight injury on Friday. But it is very much a slight injury and we'll see how it develops this week. I can only see it putting him out for a few days, that's all.'

Defender Steven Whittaker, fully recovered from ankle ligament damage, is set to play for the first time in 13 weeks when City Under-21s visit Reading at the Madejski Stadium tonight (7pm) .

Hughton is likely to field a couple more over-age players.
