Norwich and Brentford meet at Carrow Road in what will be Alex Neil's second home match and the first meeting at Carrow Road between these two teams since 2010 when Norwich won 1-0 thanks to a Chris Martin goal.
Norwich will be without Johnny Howson who was sent off against Bournemouth so the midfielder will serve the second match of his 3 match ban here. Norwich will also be without Ryan Bennett and The Canaries will also be awaiting the results of Alex Tettey's late fitness test ahead of this tie.
Brentford may give Chris Long a debut after the striker joined on loan from Everton earlier this week. Brentford are also going to be without Alan Judge and Lewis Macleod; Macleod is yet to make an apperence for the bees after he signed from Rangers earlier this month.
Overall, this will be a tight match with Brentford hungry for another victory and Alex Neil looking too make it 3 out of 3 in this fixture. The likely result is probably a draw.
Norwich- Ruddy, Martin, Turner, Cuéllar, Olsson, O'Neil, Redmond, Johnson, Grabban, Jerome, Hooper
Brentford- Button, Bidwell, Tarkowski, Dean, Odubajo, Diagouraga, Douglas, Jota, Pritchard, Dallas, Gray
