Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has confirmed that key duo Ricky van Wolfswinkel and Robert Snodgrass are both back in contention for this Saturday's trip to Sunderland.

The pair have been sidelined in recent weeks due to troublesome toe and knee injuries respectively.

However, both players could now make their comebacks at the Stadium of Light as City look to pile more misery on Gus Poyet's bottom-placed side:

“They are both back in the squad, which is good news," Hughton told the Canaries website.

"Ricky (van Wolfswinkel) was very much touch and go last week, but we felt he hadn’t done enough training in the days leading up to that match.

“Robert (Snodgrass) has come through a full-week’s training and is feeling good, so both he and Ricky are both in contention for Saturday’s game.”
