Luke Chadwick is a doubtful starter for Norwich City's Championship trip to Wolves on Saturday.

The wide midfielder is struggling with a tight hamstring after being substituted at half-time during Tuesday night's defeat at Charlton.

Manager Peter Grant admitted he also had doubts about two more first team men, but declined to name them.

“Chadwick came off injured in the first half. I'd say he's struggling. He came off, he felt his hamstring tight and Neal Reynolds worked on him at half-time. We maybe could have played him five minutes and then had him out for six or seven weeks with a hamstring problem,” said Grant.

“There are a couple of others I'd rather not mention that are struggling for the weekend. I don't want to give the other team an upper hand.”

Defender Ian Murray is another doubt because of a recurring illness, which ruled him out of contention at Charlton.

“We've got about 17, 18 first team players because Ian Murray was ill again. We don't know if Ian has got a constant infection, so we've just got to watch his system. He came back in and did a bit of running yesterday,” said Grant.

Striker David Strihavka, who scored the winner against Crystal Palace last Saturday but was back on the bench at Charlton after revealing a late concern over a thigh strain, is expected to be fully fit.

“I was disappointed in one respect because I know his keenness to play, but he's got to let us know when there is a doubt,” said Grant.

“I'm hoping David will be 100 per cent and will be available for the weekend.”
