Robbie Brady, who injured his quad during the first half of Saturday’s win over Cardiff, is a “major doubt”, according to Norwich manager Alex Neil.

But Martin Olsson is available again following a hamstring injury.

Wigan midfielder Nick Powell is a doubt after being withdrawn against Sheffield Wednesday with a groin problem.

Defender Nathan Byrne could make his debut but Reece James (ankle), Andy Kellett (knee), Kyle Knoyle (elbow) and Donervon Daniels (knee) are out.
