Todd Cantwell drops out of Norwich City’s squad with an ankle knock for tonight’s Championship game against Millwall (7pm) at Carrow Road.

Cantwell’s place is taken on the bench by fit-again defender Christoph Zimmermann, with Cantwell having a scan on what is hoped will be a minor problem.

Daniel Farke sticks with the starting XI which won 3-1 at Bristol City on Saturday though, with Marco Stiepermann in support of Teemu Pukki again.

The Canaries are without left-back Xavi Quintilla for a third game but the Spaniard is back in training after a hip muscle problem.

City are expecting to be without full-back Sam Byram (hamstring), midielder Kieran Dowell (ankle) and winger Onel Hernandez (groin) until January, after surgeries on their respective injuries.

The Lions are without striker Kenneth Zohore, after the West Brom loanee missed the 3-0 home defeat to Huddersfield on Saturday. Young Irish forward Troy Parrott, who is on loan from Spurs, also isn’t fit.
