Among the many selection decisions Norwich City boss Alex Neil has to make for tonight's clash with West Brom is who to play on the left flank.

Summer signing Robbie Brady has excelled at left-back but Martin Olsson has fully recovered from shoulder surgery and is now pushing for his first start of the campaign.

Earlier in the season Brady saw Jonny Howson and Bradley Johnson play ahead of him in left midfield but has had loan signing Matt Jarvis link up well with him in City's last two matches.

Jarvis is not allowed to play against parent club West Ham on Saturday so is likely to feature tonight but Olsson also faces competition from youngster Harry Toffolo, who started in the previous round of the Capital One Cup, a 2-1 win at Rotherham.

'Martin needs minutes anyway because he hasn't played a great deal of football but that doesn't necessarily mean that he is going to play against West Ham on Saturday,' Neil said.

'We'll treat this game first and then see where we are after this and that will give us a better idea of what I'm looking to do come the weekend.'

Whoever Neil selects for the third round clash however, he expects a tough encounter against a team who have kept three successive clean sheets in the Premier League.

'You look at Tony's (Pulis) teams, they're nice and solid at the back and he tries to build off that foundation and hopefully get something on the break or whatever,' the Scot added.

'We know what's coming, it'll be about who performs on the day and we just have to make sure we do our jobs properly.'
