Norwich City take on Rotherham United at Carrow Road on Saturday, October 4 and the Canaries will be buoyed as manager Neil Adams has intimated that the starting XI has been given a boost due to the likely returns of forward Kyle Lafferty and midfielder Nathan Redmond.
Lafferty had recently been subdued due to illness while Redmond, who has completed an extraordinary 30 dribbles, provided 32 key passes and returned a brace of assists from ten Championship appearances this season, could have been omitted due to a hamstring complaint.
"The physios are pretty confident that he’ll be ok. It’s just a bit of tightness in his hamstring," said Adams, allaying fears on the club's official website.
Rotherham are one of the football league's success stories having achieved back-to-back promotions and have currently staved off a relegation threat after their victory over Blackburn Rovers, which sees them in a comfortable 17th place.
"They had a really good win in the last game and they’ll be at it," said Adams, looking forward to the weekend fixture.
"I’ve watched two or three of their games now, the last one when they played at Ipswich, and Ipswich scored a couple of early goals but Rotherham were probably the best team in that game.
"We’re at home, we’ll go for it again and I’m pretty sure Rotherham will come and try to keep us quiet in the manner that other teams have done."
