Dijks suspended for Barnsley clash but Klose available again

Managerless Norwich must do without suspended defender Mitchell Dijks for the visit of Barnsley.

The Dutchman was shown a straight red card in last weekend's 2-2 home draw against Blackburn - the first match since the sacking of Alex Neil - and so starts a three-game ban.

Switzerland centre-half Timm Klose is available again following a back problem, while striker Nelson Oliveira has recovered from his broken foot and midfielder Graham Dorrans is also now fit following his hamstring injury.

Midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu (thigh) and winger Matt Jarvis (hamstring) continue their recoveries, while Louis Thompson is out for the season following Achilles surgery.

Barnsley defender Marc Roberts is hoping to prove his fitness in time for the match after sustaining an ankle injury.

Head coach Paul Heckingbottom expects Roberts to be in contention and has no other new injury or suspension problems.

Fellow defenders Gethin Jones (toe) and Andy Yiadom (knee) both overcame minor knocks to start in last week's home draw against Ipswich.

Left-back Aidy White remains Heckingbottom's only absentee as he is recovering from surgery to resolve a pelvis problem.
