Norwich City and Wolverhampton Wanderers do battle in the Championship on Tuesday night, with both sides looking to make up for disappointing defeats at the weekend.

The Canaries were beaten 2-1 by Derby County at Carrow Road on Saturday, which saw them slip out of the play-off places in the table, while Wolves suffered a loss by the same scoreline at QPR, a result which saw them lose top spot.

Norwich will go into the match potentially without a couple of key players. Nelson Oliviera has a calf injury and he will definitely miss the contest, while full-back Ivo Pinto is a doubt having picked up a knock during the defeat to the Rams.

Steven Naismith has returned to training for the Canaries, but the match is expected to come a little too soon for him. Matt Jarvis, Jamal Lewis and Louis Thompson remain on the sidelines with longer term injuries.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo will be forced into one change for the trip to Norfolk. He will be without midfielder Romain Saiss after he picked up a fifth booking in the loss at Loftus Road on Saturday.

The Molineux outfit could be boosted by the return of centre-back Willy Boly though. He was left on the bench at the weekend but he could make a comeback from a hamstring injury, according to BBC Sport.

Helder Costa was brought on at Loftus Road on Saturday, and will be hoping he did enough to earn a start in this contest, with Bright Enobakhare in the same position.

Norwich go into the contest knowing they have won their last four matches with Wolves at Carrow Road, and another victory will catapult them back into the play-off places if results go their way. If the Wanderers can break that run, they will go top again if Sheffield United fail to beat QPR.
