Teemu Pukki and Jordan Hugill get another chance to work on their forward partnership as Norwich City take on Wycombe Wanderers this afternoon.

Head coach Daniel Farke names an unchanged squad of 18 following a dominant 1-0 home win over Birmingham on Tuesday, which Marco Stiepermann missed through illness.

The Canaries remain without Christoph Zimmermann, as a minor calf injury takes longer to settle down than expected, so Alex Tettey continues to provide centre-back cover.

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

Wycombe make two changes, bringing in Fred Onyedimna for Alex Samuel up front and David Wheeler for Matt Bloomfield in midfield.
