City's injury list shows no sign of shrinking ahead of Sunday's final Coca-Cola Championship fixture of the season at Sheffield Wednesday. Veteran Dion Dublin, thinking over the offer of a new one-year contract with the Canaries, is battling against a hamstring strain to be fit for the game at Hillsborough (1pm).

City's injury list shows no sign of shrinking ahead of Sunday's final Coca-Cola Championship fixture of the season at Sheffield Wednesday.

Veteran Dion Dublin, thinking over the offer of a new one-year contract with the Canaries, is battling against a hamstring strain to be fit for the game at Hillsborough (1pm).

Winger Lee Croft, who missed last week's 1-0 home defeat by Southampton with a badly bruised shin, has not trained this week and is again a doubtful starter.

Midfielder Youssef Safri, who suffered a hamstring injury in the Easter Monday home defeat by West Bromwich Albion and has missed four matches, will not be fit to return.

And although striker Chris Brown has returned to training after 10 weeks out with hamstring and back trouble, he is unlikely to be risked on the last day of the season.

“Chris is back in training but there is a massive doubt over his chances of being involved in the 16,” said manager Peter Grant. “But he's feeling much, much better than he did, and that's the main thing.”

Winger Luke Chadwick, yet to play a full 90 minutes for City, is another on the sidelines after missing the last six matches with a thigh strain.
