Dan Burn and Gavin Massey remain sidelined.

NORWICH CITY

Jordan Rhodes hit the goal trail with a hat-trick in Norwich's 4-3 victory against Wycombe Wanderers in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening. The loanee came in to replace leading goal scorer Teemu Pukki who was rested and is expected to return to the starting XI this weekend.

Ben Marshall was absent but began training on Monday following a recent illness, whilst defender Ivo Pinto made his first team return in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.

Onel Hernandez is expected to return after the international break but is back running, whilst Kenny McLean looks likely to be out for longer than first anticipated.
