Daniel Farke may welcome the headache but who holds the middle ground for Norwich City in Saturday’s Championship trip to Millwall is a hot selection topic.

Mario Vrancic returned well ahead of schedule from an ankle injury at Carrow Road with a late cameo in the 3-2 comeback win against Bristol City. Vrancic was in superb form during January before limping out of the East Anglian derby victory over Ipswich Town.

Moritz Leitner was an unused sub against the Robins, after his own return from a lengthy ankle problem earlier this month in the 4-0 romp at Bolton Wanderers.

Leitner was a key figure in the club’s surge up the table prior to Christmas but Farke has so far opted to keep the cultured playmaker in reserve.

Tom Trybull and Kenny McLean retained their places for the vital win over Bristol City, and McLean notched a match-winning brace to open his league account for the club.
