Long-term absentee Matt Jarvis and Youssouf Mulumbu are the only injury problems for Alex Neil as Norwich City prepare to head north.

Jarvis will miss out once again as he continues his recovery from knee surgery while Mulumbu may yet join him as an enforced absentee at Newcastle United.

Canaries boss Neil said: 'Youssef Mulumbu's foot is just niggling away a little bit since the Everton game but other than that the rest of the lads are just fine.'

It means Alex Tettey, who has missed Norwich's last three matches with a hip complaint, is in contention to be part of City's squad at St James' Park.

A late decision was made on him prior to Saturday's Championship clash against Burton Albion but the Norwegian wasn't included in Neil's starting XI or his substitutes.
