Daniel Farke held his press conference on Friday afternoon ahead of Sunday’s Championship home opener against Sunderland.

Farke provided fitness updates on longer term injury absentees Alex Pritchard and Timm Klose, along with defensive duo Jamal Lewis and Harry Toffolo, who also missed the midweek League Cup win over Swindon Town.

The German also gave his final vedict on Nelson Oliveira’s absence from his cup squad, following a high profile stand off with the head coach after his equaliser at Fulham last weekend.

Steven Naismith also faced the media as he prepares to return on Sunday following a suspension that ruled him out of the opening two games of the season.
