Dislocated shoulder keeps Louis Thompson out of Norwich side

Norwich will be without Louis Thompson for the Sky Bet Championship match against Brentford as the midfielder recovers from a dislocated shoulder.

Thompson suffered the unfortunate injury moments after coming on as a late substitute in the 2-1 win over Aston Villa at Carrow Road on Tuesday night again, but has not damaged any ligaments and is expected back within four weeks.

Striker Teemu Pukki (hamstring) continues his recovery, so Jordan Rhodes, who scored both goals against Villa, should lead the Canaries attack again, while Tom Trybull (toe) and full-back Max Aarons are expected to shake off minor knocks.

Midfielder Ben Marshall could be involved again following illness, but captain Grant Hanley (thigh), Scotland midfielder Kenny McLean (ankle), winger Matt Jarvis (ankle/knee) and forward Carlton Morris (knee) are all still in rehabilitation.

Brentford will have defender Chris Mepham available again following a one-match ban.

New Bees head coach Thomas Frank has a doubt over defender Julian Jeanvier, who has been sidelined by a foot injury.

Midfielder Josh Dasilva and defender Rico Henry both stepped up their recovery with run-outs for Brentford B in midweek, but are not expected to be back in contention at Carrow Road.

Forward Marcus Forss (back) and midfielder Emiliano Marcondes (foot) remain unavailable.
