Norwich defender Ryan Bennett could miss Saturday's match against Southampton after needing stitches in a gashed left knee sustained in the 6-3 Capital One Cup victory against Bury in midweek.

Bennett expected to miss out

Manager Chris Hughton rates his chances as "touch and go", while striker Gary Hooper is still out with a shin problem but should be fit for the Tottenham game following the international break.

Midfielder Elliott Bennett is recovering from surgery on a cruciate ligament injury.

Southampton duo Guly do Prado and Jos Hooiveld will be assessed ahead of the trip to Carrow Road.

Both missed Tuesday's Capital One Cup second-round win at Barnsley through illness and could be absent again at Carrow Road.

Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino confirmed several other unnamed players need to be looked at, while record signing Dani Osvaldo could make his full debut in East Anglia.
