Norwich City midfielder Tom Trybull is set to miss the Canaries’ Championship game against Bristol City on Saturday through injury.

The German midfielder, who recently returned to the City side, is having issues with a persistent back injury that flared up during the Canaries’ draw with Chelsea.

Talking to the media in his pre-match press conference, manager Daniel Farke explained that the 24-year old could hardly walk. Farke said;

We’ll have to do without Tom Trybull because he has problems with his back. He felt it in the last game, and it hasn’t improved since then which is a real shame because he was in a good shape.

Yesterday he trained with us in the morning but his back got worse and worse, and this morning he was hardly able to walk. We can’t judge how serious it is yet, as back injuries can come and go, but we hope he can come back pretty soon.

In better news, Harrison Reed returned to training this week having been unavailable since Boxing Day with a hip injury. Although not 100% fit, Farke explained that Reed would be needed this weekend. He continued;

Harrison returned to training this week, but he’s not 100% comfortable. But because of the Tom Trybull news, we feel we need him so he will travel with us to Bristol.
