Robbie Brady and Jonny Howson will come back into contention for Norwich City's midweek Championship trip to Fulham.

Table-topping City's bid to lift the Craven Cottage curse on Tuesday is set to be boosted by the additions of the key duo who missed out against Rotherham. Howson picked up an ankle injury in training while Brady was never going to be risked after being concussed on international duty.

Alex Neil wasted no time turning his attentions to the Cottagers after beating the Millers at the weekend.

'Once you win a game, it's gone, put it to one side and move on, When you lose a game there is a post-mortem for the next week so this one is done now and we turn our attentions to Fulham,' he said. 'Jon just had a knock to his ankle in training. Nothing serious, but it prevented him from being available. We're hopeful for Tuesday.

'With Robbie there is a process that needs to be followed after you get knocked out. The player needs to symptom-free and do a few days of work before he can be considered for a game. He hadn't been able to complete that process but he trained over the weekend and we'll see how he responds.'

Neil must weigh up whether to give Jacob Murphy a rest after his early second-half exit, for twin Josh.

'Maybe he is hitting a little lull, if you look at this game and the Wolves one, but look at how well he played for the first seven or eight matches and for a young lad to score six goals was really an incredible level of performance,' he said. 'Josh came on and showed us what he is all about. Defensively, he needs to do a bit better but he gets the third goal for us; just like when he came on against Cardiff. It is a learning curve for those boys, we have to put them in and give them the chance and they might make mistakes at times. I just hope it doesn't cost us points because that would upset everybody.'
