Hwang Ui-Jo replaces Liam Gibbs to make his first Norwich City start against Plymouth Argyle this afternoon.

The former Ipswich Town midfielder drops to the bench for the trip to Home Park, while Adam Idah comes in for the injured Ashley Barnes.

Barnes is expected to be out until November with a knee ligament injury, while strike partner Josh Sargent could miss the end of 2023.

Summer signing Borja Sainz has now played twice for the Canaries' under-21 side, but is continuing his recovery from an ankle injury at a slow pace. The Spanish winger is expected to make his first-team debut in Wednesday's Carabao Cup trip to Fulham.

Jacob Sorensen has also returned from injury to begin training with the first team, but will need to get back up to speed before being an option for Wagner.

The German refused to put a timeline on Grant Hanley's recovery when asked on Monday evening, but said he believes the club captain could be ahead of schedule with his achilles rehabilitation.

Marcelino Nunez is set to miss weeks rather than months with an ankle ailment sustained on international duty, and could return in time to play for Chile in their October clash with Peru.

Former Norwich wide man Bali Mumba starts for the hosts after joining them permanently in July.
