Norwich City: David Wagner on Grant Hanley fitness

The Canaries captain had been on a personal fitness programme since mid-March, having struggled to get up to full speed after returning from a long-term Achilles injury.

Hanley returned to full team training this week, however, and his head coach says he could feature against the South Wales club.

Norwich fans will likely have to wait a little longer to see first-choice left-back Dimitris Giannoulis, who is expected back in training next week.

“Grant had a complete week of team training,” Wagner said at his pre-match press conference. “I’ll have a conversation with him [today] after training about how we will treat him at the weekend.

“But he trained well without any issues. Jonny (Rowe) felt a little bit sore after the last game, but he was back in the group [yesterday].

“Dimi is back in team training, if everything goes to plan, next week. Onel (Hernandez) will take time. This is the situation.”
