Norwich City manager Daniel Farke has taken the decision to exclude Nelson Oliveira from his squad to face Nottingham Forest at Carrow Road this evening.

The Portugal international was thought to be in line to start for the Canaries as they go in search of a win that could lift them into the top half of the Championship.

However, as tweeted by PA Sport reporter Nick Mashiter, it has emerged that Oliveira has been left out by Farke as a consequence of disciplinary problems.

Oliveira is known to be something of a controversial figure and it seems he has struggled to follow conduct in recent times, leading Farke to overlook him for Norwich’s game against Forest.

The former Swansea loanee will now be hoping to force his way back into his manager’s plans as Norwich approach the final stretch of the season in the Championship.
