Norwich v Fulham preview

Date published: Friday 1st May 2015 11:32

Grabban begins a three-match ban after being dismissed for violent conduct in the 26th minute of the 1-1 draw at Rotherham which ended their top-two aspirations.

Gary Hooper has been used off the bench in the last six matches and could now earn a start, particularly after his stunning strike at the New York Stadium last Saturday.

Steven Whittaker (hamstring) and Alex Tettey (knee) missed the trip to Yorkshire but should be back in contention while other changes may be made with the play-offs in mind.

Fulham are set to be without skipper Scott Parker, who is struggling to shake off the ankle knock which meant he missed the 4-3 win over Middlesbrough last weekend.

Kostas Stafylidis is fit following a back injury while fellow full-back James Husband will be assessed after a hamstring strain.

Husband was ineligible to face Boro anyway as he is on loan from the Teessiders, and centre-half Michael Turner is ruled out at Carrow Road under the terms of his loan deal from Norwich.

Midfielders Lasse Vigen Christensen (hamstring), Emerson Hyndman (collarbone) and George Williams (knee) will miss out again.
