Norwich City talisman Teemu Pukki has been dropped by David Wagner for the Canaries' Championship meeting with Huddersfield Town this evening.

He's replaced by Josh Sargent as the Canaries take on Wagner's former side at the John Smith's stadium, while January signing Marquinhos starts ahead of the injured Onel Hernandez.

Jacob Sorensen also comes into the XI in place of Marcelino Nunez, as Wagner looks to bolster his midfield.

Former Coventry City full-back Sam McCallum comes back into the squad, with Hernandez dropping out.

Kieran Dowell will be unavailable until late April after sustaining a knee injury in last month’s win over Birmingham, Wagner confirmed in a recent press conference.

Przemyslaw Placheta (shin) is also unavailable long-term, with Newcastle United loanee Isaac Hayden out until the very late stages of the season after a knee operation.

Wagner refused to put a timeline on Sam Byram’s return, as he recovers from a long-term hamstring injury. Young winger Jonathan Rowe is back in training, but is being eased back in slowly as he looks to make his first senior appearance of the season.

Former Norwich loanee Jordan Rhodes is on the bench for the hosts.
