17 November 2017
Maddison doubtful before Barnsley clash

Norwich will make a late decision on James Maddison ahead of the Sky Bet Championship visit of Barnsley after the midfielder returned from England Under-21 duty with a hamstring problem.

Forward Cameron Jerome has been carrying a foot problem, but should be available, along with Nelson Oliveira after his calf injury.

Midfielder Alex Pritchard has returned to training following ankle surgery, while defender Jamal Lewis (knee) also continues his recovery along with Alex Tettey (calf).

Forward Steven Naismith (ankle), midfielder Louis Thompson (Achilles) and winger Matt Jarvis (ankle) remain unavailable.

Barnsley will be without winger Lloyd Isgrove, who sustained a knee injury in the recent home win against Birmingham.

Isgrove's season was delayed until the end of October due to foot and thigh injuries and after being forced off last time he will not be ready for this weekend.

Midfielder Gary Gardner (leg) has returned to training but remains unavailable and defender Adam Jackson (knee) remains a long-term absentee.

Head coach Paul Heckingbottom has no other new injury or suspension worries as the Reds chase a third straight league win.
