Norwich v Bristol City preview: Nelson Oliveira still missing
Last Updated: 22/09/17 3:32pm
Norwich are expected to again be without forward Nelson Oliveira, who is recovering from a groin problem, for the visit of Bristol City.
Mario Vrancic scored twice in the midweek 3-1 Carabao Cup win at Brentford, so could retain his place in midfield. Defender Grant Hanley is available again having been cup-tied, while Marley Watkins is pressing for a start in attack.
