Cameron Jerome and Alex Tettey back in training for Norwich

Norwich could have striker Cameron Jerome and midfielder Alex Tettey back in their squad for the Sky Bet Championship clash with Aston Villa.

The pair have missed the last two games with back and hip complaints respectively but they have returned to training.

Forward Steven Naismith missed Saturday's defeat at Barnsley with a hamstring injury but should also be back in contention, as could goalkeeper Michael McGovern (knee).

Midfielder Louis Thompson is again ruled out with a pelvic problem but Youssouf Mulumbu is pushing for a start after impressing as a half-time substitute at Oakwell.

Jack Grealish is likely to retain his place in Aston Villa's starting line-up after scoring at the weekend.

The 21-year-old midfielder fired in a late winner against Wigan on his return to Steve Bruce's starting XI.

Ross McCormack returned from a spell on the sidelines with an ankle injury in the second half of Saturday's win and could feature once again on Tuesday.

Villa, who have lost just one of their last nine league games, would go above the Canaries in the table if they come out on top at Carrow Road.
