Marco Stiepermann and Matt Jarvis were due to step up their injury comebacks for City during the U23 action against Wolves but 31-year-old winger Jarvis was not involved.

However, Stiepermann put the young Canaries 2-0 up after Tristan Abrahams had opened the scoring and Matt Gill’s side held on despite heavy pressure from the visitors after the break.

Stiepermann hasn’t featured for the Canaries first team for two months due to surgery on a hernia and has made just four appearances as a substitute since his last start, a 2-1 home defeat to Brentford in the Championship on December 22.

The 27-year-old summer signing from Bochum has made 27 appearances for Daniel Farke’s team though, mostly at left-back but also in midfield.
