Grant Hanley has got the nod to replace the injured Ben Godfrey for Norwich City’s home Premier League clash with Wolves this afternoon, bringing an end to his own three-month injury absence.

The Scotland international centre-back started the first three games of the season before giving way to the need for groin and hernia surgery, as part of City's defensive injury crisis.

With Ben Godfrey ruled out until February with a minor knee injury in midweek, Hanley comes back into Daniel Farke's starting XI after around 10 days back in full training.

Otherwise the Canaries are unchanged from their 1-1 draw at Leicester and the visitors keep the same starting XI as well, from a 2-1 home defeat to Tottenham last weekend, which was settled by a late goal.

There is one change on the bench for Wolves though, with young Real Madrid loan defender Jesus Vallejo replacing former Norwich trainee striker Benny Ashley-Seal.
