Daniel Farke previewed Norwich City’s Championship game against Coventry City - and we had all the key lines first from a video chat with the boss at Colney.

Farke confirmed Tim Krul is out for three weeks after his first half departure in Tuesday's 3-2 win at Stoke City with a thigh muscle issue. 

Teemu Pukki (hamstring) is also ruled out this weekend and a doubt for Luton next week after his second half departure in the Potteries. Marco Stiepermann (head) is available after his second half exit at Stoke but Emi Buendia is suspended after his midweek sending off.

Kenny McLean (knee), Todd Cantwell (hip) and Jordan Hugill (shoulder) are out for the next few weeks, with McLean and Hugill hoping to avoid a longer term absence.

Xavi Quintilla (hip) remains sidelined, with Farke unwilling to provide a timeline on his potential return.


You may also want to watch:


Onel Hernandez (adductor), Kieran Dowell (ankle), Sam Byram (hamstring), Adam Idah (knee) and Bali Mumba (knee) are not expected to be in contention until early in the new year.

Moritz Leitner is not part of the plans for the new season. Josip Drmic is unavailable in the short term as he undergoes a period of quarantine after treatment on an injury in Switzerland. Farke hinted he might come back into his thoughts if he is without his frontline strikers in two to three weeks.
