Norwich City

Last updated: Sat 19 January 2019 08:02
In Brief

Norwich drop out of top two. Grant Hanley back from suspension. Alex Tettey, Timm Klose, Moritz Leitner, Carlton Morris and Nelson Oliveira injured. Marco Stiepermann doubtful. Ben Marshall departs.

Looking Back

In poor form and have dropped out of the top two as a result.

Did at least rescue a point in a 1-1 draw at West Brom last week, thanks to a late goal from sub Jordan Rhodes.

Out of favour Ben Marshall has left the club to join Millwall on loan.

Looking Ahead

Have had injured players come back recently. Timm Klose was on the bench last week after suffering a knock previously but he has now been ruled out along with Alex Tettey.

Now also have Grant Hanley back from suspension but he's unlikely to start.

Moritz Leitner, Carlton Morris and Nelson Oliveira remain sidelined while Marco Stiepermann is doubtful.

Points of Interest

Excellent home record with eight wins, one draw and four losses.

Birmingham City

Last updated: Sat 19 January 2019 08:02
In Brief

Birmingham now without a win in four. Tomasz Kuszczak, Marc Roberts and David Davis injured. Omar Bogle doubtful.

Looking Back

Form has dipped of late and now failed to win in four games including two straight defeats.

Went down to a disappointing 2-1 home defeat to Middlesbrough last week despite Che Adams netting for the 13th time this season.

Looking Ahead

Had Isaac Vassell back on the bench last week and he should be involved again.

Tomasz Kuszczak, Marc Roberts and David Davis all remain sidelined while Omar Bogle is again a big doubt.

Points of Interest

Have four wins, five draws and four losses away from home this term. Drew 2-2 at home to Norwich earlier in season.
