Full-back Adam Drury will miss Norwich City's home clash with Stoke City on Saturday after picking up his fifth booking of the season in the 4-1 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Full-back Adam Drury will miss Norwich City's home clash with Stoke City on Saturday after picking up his fifth booking of the season in the 4-1 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Had Drury picked up his fifth yellow after March 1, he would have received a mere warning as opposed to the one-match ban he now faces this weekend.

Those nearing 10 yellow cards, however, have until the middle of April to wait before the warning system comes into force. Youssef Safri, who has already been suspended once this season, is currently on eight bookings. Two more and the City midfielder will face a two-match ban.

Safri is one injury concern ahead of the Stoke game after being substituted at Selhurst Park.

Physiotherapist Neal Reynolds said: "Youssef took a bang to his left-hand side, which is very sore with bruising. We will continue to assess him day by day."
