James Husband has returned to Norwich City from Fleetwood Town for assessment on a hamstring injury.

The 24-year-old, whose loan deal with the Cod Army is until January, limped off in the 10th-minute of Saturday’s 4-0 win over Doncaster and boss Joey Barton expects to be without the left-back for a few weeks.

“James had a hamstring a couple of weeks ago. He came back from that, felt it again and he is going to go back to Norwich because he is their player and they will have a look at him. We would expect him to be out for at least two, three weeks.

“We are not sure how it happened. There was kind of a jostling match and Hubby managed to pull his hamstring. It is not the most serious hamstring but it is not nothing.

“I thought Coyley was outstanding at left-back – a real Denis Irwin type. He’s a right-footed player who looks very comfortable at left-back. That is the versatility in the squad.”
