Norwich V Hull at Carrow Road : Match Preview

13 October 2017
Norwich midfielder Alex Tettey ruled out of Hull clash

Norwich midfielder Alex Tettey will miss the Sky Bet Championship clash against Hull because of a calf problem which is expected to sideline him for several weeks, while winger Josh Murphy has a broken toe.

Forward Marley Watkins, who withdrew from the Wales squad because of a foot problem, starts a three-match ban, but midfielders Mario Vrancic (calf) and Marco Stiepermann (groin) are expected to be in contention again.

Forward Steven Naismith has an ankle problem and club captain Russell Martin is recovering from a back injury.

Alex Pritchard has been stepping up his recovery from ankle surgery, while Matt Jarvis (ankle), Jamal Lewis (knee) and Louis Thompson (Achilles) also continue their rehabilitation.

Hull will be without defender Stephen Kingsley, who will be sidelined for at least four weeks after undergoing groin surgery this week.

Max Clark will continue to deputise for Kingsley at left-back, while striker Frazier Campbell is doubtful after sustaining a minor knee injury in the recent home win against Birmingham.

Evandro, yet to feature for the Tigers this season, is still out. The midfielder is now struggling with a quad muscle problem having recovered from a hamstring tendon injury.

Will Keane is hoping to return to action next month following a long-term knee injury and fellow striker Abel Hernandez (Achilles) will be out until next spring.
