Dean Smith previewed Norwich City’s final Premier League game against Tottenham - and we had all the key lines first direct from Colney with the boss.

City bid for a positive Carrow Road climax against Champions League-chasing Spurs, who need only a point to seal the fourth and final automatic qualifying place for next season's competition.

Norwich have their own agenda but it would need a home win, and a slip up for Watford at Chelsea, to overhaul the Hornets and earn another £2m in merit payments for a 19th-placed finish.

Smith revealed Ben Gibson (back) and Billy Gilmour (ankle) are major doubts for Spurs' visit.

Gilmour has returned to parent club Chelsea for assessment on the rolled ankle that forced him off at Wolves.

Fellow loan midfielder Mathias Normann is available after departing in the second half at Molineux with an ankle issue.

Smith reported no other injury concerns from those on duty last weekend.
