Dean Smith previewed Norwich City’s Premier League game against Brentford - and we had all the key lines first direct from Colney with the boss.

Smith provided a full fitness update on those who featured in the midweek 2-1 FA Cup fifth round defeat to Liverpool.

Max Aarons and Brandon Williams are fit and available after missing out at Anfield to rest knocks. Ozan Kabak (shoulder) was also due to train later on Friday and would come into contention.

Captain Grant Hanley is expected to return after being suspended for the cup tie.

The likes of Christoph Zimmermann, Sam Byram and Lukas Rupp all got rare chances to impress on Merseyside after spells on the sidelines this season with injury.

Przemyslaw Placheta was substituted at the interval following a heavy tumble over the advertising boards, but Smith indicated there was no major concern around the Pole in his post-match media at Anfield.

Andrew Omobamidele (back) is still out and wearing a special corset for his back issue following another visit to a specialist. Adam Idah is out for the season with a knee injury.
