Norwich will hand late fitness tests to forward Steven Naismith (hamstring) and wing-back Robbie Brady (calf) ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League match against Manchester City at Carrow Road.

Centre-half Sebastien Bassong has missed the last three matches with an unspecified issue, so will again be assessed.

On-loan Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom has stepped up his recovery from a knee problem and could be back in contention, but midfielder Alex Tettey is expected to be out for the rest of the season following ankle surgery.

Manchester City will be without midfielder Yaya Toure for Saturday's Barclays Premier League trip to Norwich because of a heel problem.

The Ivory Coast international has suffered a recurrence of the injury that kept him out of last week's game at Liverpool and he will be assessed ahead of next Tuesday's Champions League clash against Dynamo Kiev.

Midfielders Fabian Delph (shin), Kevin De Bruyne (knee) and Samir Nasri (thigh) remain on sidelines but could return after the forthcoming international break.

Norwich squad: Ruddy, Martin, Brady, Klose, Pinto, Howson, O'Neil, Naismith, Jerome, Hoolahan, Redmond, Rudd, Mbokani, Bamford, Mulumbu, Jarvis, Dorrans, Bennett, Bassong, Wisdom.

Man City squad: Hart, Caballero, Zabaleta, Sagna, Kompany, Otamendi, Mangala, Demichelis, Kolarov, Clichy, Fernando, Fernandinho, Silva, Navas, Sterling, M Garcia, Aguero, Bony, Iheanacho.
