DF has confirmed that Klose has a muscle injury and will not be fit for tomorrow. Tom Trybull and James Husband are also defo out.

'Tom Trybull isn't available, no. We hope we will have him back for Cardiff. James Husband won't be available tomorrow. We hope Alex Tettey will return after the Cardiff match. Timm Klose isn't available. He has a muscle strain and we have to do without him tomorrow.'

DF says that Trybull and Klose should be okay for Cardiff. Tettey after.

DF has confirmed that Watkins and Reed are also injured but he hopes a late fitness test will show that they are okay.

Bloody that is a long injury list and someone has to look at the reasons why so many players are injured. If Reed is out then will we just go 4-0-5-1

Also, Naismith is now having to see a Doctor as he has injuries and can't seem to shake them and is going through the same as Oli? very strange. DF says that Naismith is now seing a specialist.

Subs bench might only have four players on haha, oh my god what is going on.

DF says that Pritchard is ahead of schedule and he is tempted to get him involved earlier especially now Watkins and Reed could miss out tomorrow.

'Alex Pritchard has been training 8-9 days and looks sharp. I hope he can return to the pitch soon.'

Martin is also out. Zimmermann will play with Franke as the main back up.

So -

Out:

Klose
Naismith
Husband
Tettey
Jarvis
Lewis
Martin
Thompson

50/50:

Reed
Watkins
Pritchard

DF says that it is hard to turn this around - doesn't sound good:

'When you work in football for a long time, you know it can be hard to force a win to turn things around. It's not easy and you have to fight for the right result. I hope we can.'

That is a Hughton quote right there

DF admits that the football his side are playing isn't great to watch for the Norwich fans and in turn, he says that the fans need to help the players.

So DF change it up.

'You can't stand there with self-sympathy and pray for a result. You have to work for it and force it. It's about concentrating on the content of the game, not so much the actual target. There are topics we can improve, 100 per cent. We can influence that'

So the target (winning) isn't as important but the content (the way you play) is. Strange comment but maybe that is why he thought the last match was very good?

Time to really change it - that would take PNE by surprise as they will go in thinking the same as every other manager - hold it out and then score and we win. Play a different system and style DF. With injuries, I think he will have to.

DF said that due to the situation there might be some shocks in the line up:

'Yes, I am thinking of a crazy decision or two. We have so many injury problems.'

I am guessing those crazy decisions will be Pritchard, Phillips or a Cantwell. Could also be a different formation.

Gunn

God who knows (Franke maybe)
Hanley
Zimmermann

Pinto
Reed
Stipermann
Phillips
Wildschut

Maddison

Oli

3-5-1-1

or

Gunn

Pinto
Hanley
Zimmermann
Steipermann

Murphy
Reed
Phillips
Wildschut

Maddison
Oli

Subs:
McGovern - Wes - Jerome - Cantwell - Franke - Vrancic - Pritchard (Yes I would get him on the bench)

I would either pack that midfield or just go for a 4-4-2 (4-4-1-1) - I am sure Maddison will want to show AN what he missed.

If we go with 3 at the back then I wouldn't play Murphy as he isn't great at helping the defence but if a 4-4-2 then play him and Wildschut and say 'use your pace lads and get the crosses into Oli' and get Maddison higher up the pitch.

I don't understand this attitude that some fans on pink un have that it is crazy for Pritchard to come back this soon. If he is fit then he is involved.

I can't believe that Reed and Watkins are also injured. If they are then I think we will see :

Wes -Vrancic - Maddison - Murphy

or

Vrancic - Maddison

Murphy - Wes - Wildschut

as our midfield which doesn't make me confident at all

DF said on tomorrow and the atmosphere:

'Yes, we have to give the fans something to cheer but the young lads will need the fans as well.'

Zimmermann has admitted that if he didn't get a top club this season he would have quit football.

I like him and think he has improved but says a lot about the type of players we are now getting - ones who are in the lower league and were on verge of quitting.

'After last season, there had to be a cut for me. I either had to find an opportunity to play in a good league or not be in professional football. I'm glad and thankful for this opportunity. I'm trying to show I'm worth it and return the favours I've been given so far.'

Have I missed a signing? Who Philips, that's being touted in midfield?

Clwyd, he was signed on a free in summer. He was released from Liverpool after an injury problem. Webber knew of him at his time at Liverpool.

Cantwell has put a message up saying 'massive game today'. Has he just let slip that he will be involved? Norwich replied 'line up revealed at 2'

If Cantwell plays then all the best to him - Norwich lad and fan.

Lots asking if he is playing - he puts up an emoji of fingers crossed.
