Sunderland v Norwich preview
Last Updated: 09/04/18 2:26pm
Sunderland boss Chris Coleman is likely to be without Marc Wilson and Paddy McNair as he attempts to stave off relegation from the Sky Bet Championship against Norwich.
Both players picked up knocks during Saturday's 1-1 draw at Leeds and Wilson has definitely been ruled out, while McNair is rated as "highly unlikely" to make it.

Bryan Oviedo will return to the squad after missing the game at Elland Road, but Billy Jones and Jonny Williams are yet to reach full match fitness after knee and thigh injuries respectively. In addition, Robbin Ruiter (dislocated finger), Tyias Browning (knee) and Duncan Watmore (knee ligaments) are still sidelined.
Norwich boss Daniel Farke will make a series of late decisions as he assesses the effects of a busy period on his players. Farke will check on Alex Tettey, Harrison Reed and Ivo Pinto after their exertions in Saturday's 3-1 win over promotion-chasing Aston Villa, although he has admitted he is tempted to field an unchanged XI.
Striker Marley Watkins, who missed the Villa game through illness, has returned to light training, although is unlikely to figure after losing a significant amount of weight. Midfielder Moritz Leitner was an unused substitute at the weekend following his return from a hamstring injury, but is not yet ready to start a game, while Farke is still without Onel Hernandez (hamstring), Marco Stiepermann (hernia), Tom Trybull (ankle/knee), Matt Jarvis (ankle) and Louis Thompson (Achilles).
