Norwich City Team News:
Norwich manager Neil Adams told their official website...
"We`re hoping that we`ll have the full complement, apart from the obvious injuries. One or two won`t train on Thursday, Friday will be the key day. Everybody will train then if they want to be considered for Saturday`s game. Martin Olsson misses out because of a family bereavement, so we send him our best wishes. Mark Bunn has had ankle surgery, a similar type of injury to Ryan Bennett, so will now be going through the same rehabilitation process.
They have also signed Connor McGrandles from Falkirk who is a 18-year-old midfield player.
Player to watch: Lewis Grabban
Lewis Grabban our old player and leading scorer last season. He has started the season well scoring 4 goals in the league so far.
Let's hope if he gets a one on one against us he puts it wide or over.
AFC Bournemouth Team News:
After injury Simon Francis could be back in contention for a place in the squad.
Player to watch: Callum Wilson
Callum Wilson, let's hope he can outshine Grabban for the opposition on Saturday.
Wilson has scored 3 goals in the Championship the last being against Nottingham Forest.
