Norwich expect to have winger Matt Jarvis available for Wednesday’s Barclays Premier League match at Stoke following a knee injury.

Manager Alex Neil reported no fresh injury problems following the FA Cup third-round defeat by Manchester City, when the likes of midfielder Robbie Brady and Alex Tettey were rested, so should come back into the starting XI along with goalkeeper Declan Rudd.

New signing Ivo Pinto will be given more time to settle in following the Portuguese full-back’s transfer from Dinamo Zagreb.

Provisional Squad: Rudd, Ruddy, Bennett, Bassong, Martin, Olsson, Whittaker, Tettey, Mulumbu, O’Neil, Odjidja-Ofoe, Andreu, Dorrans, Brady, Howson, Redmond, Hoolahan, Mbokani, Jerome, Lafferty
