Norwich v Sheffield Weds preview

Date published: Sunday 5th April 2015 11:27

Norwich boss Alex Neil could shuffle his pack when Sheffield Wednesday come calling on Easter Monday.

The Canaries moved into third place in the Sky Bet Championship, one point off the automatic-promotion places, after Bradley Johnson’s 11th goal of the season downed Brighton on Good Friday.

Nathan Redmond was left on the bench at the Amex Stadium following his exploits for England Under-21s last week, but may return to the starting line-up after setting up Johnson’s winner during an impressive 34-minute cameo in the second half.

Ryan Bennett and Elliott Bennett (both hamstring) return to contention, the former having travelled with the squad to Brighton but failed to be included in the matchday party, while an ankle injury continues to sideline Lewis Grabban.

Sheffield Wednesday are still expected to be without Jeremy Helan and Will Keane.

Both players missed Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Huddersfield with respective groin and ankle injuries and neither are expected to be fit for the trip to Carrow Road.

Boss Stuart Gray could be tempted into changes, with striker Sergiu Bus pushing for a start after he bagged his first Owls goal on Saturday.

Stevie May and Chris Maguire are also in the hunt for starts.
