Daniel Farke will have a virtually fully fit squad for Saturday’s trip to face Millwall at the New Den (3pm).

Speaking at Colney, in his usual pre-match presser on Friday lunchtime, Farke reported that Alex Tettey has been back in training since last Sunday and he is available, along with Moritz Leitner and Timm Klose, who have both got another week’s worth of training and conditioning into their legs.
There’s also good news for Louis Thompson, who after yet another injury ravaged season for the former Swindon Town midfielder, returns to full training next week. The return to full fitness of almost all of his quality players is, of course, a huge boon to Farke, although as he pointed out, it doesn’t make his decision making process when picking the team any easier. That is in stark contrast to promotion rivals, Leeds United who have lost a few key players including striker, Kemar Roofe.
The game against Millwall is naturally going to be tough with the Lions in the midst of a relegation battle. The home game is well remembered in these parts for its dramatic end as Teemu Pukki scored a 96th minute winner to clinch a 4-3 win, with the Canaries having been 3-2 down at the ninety minute mark.
Farke spoke about the importance of the travelling 3,000 strong army of Canary fans, with Norwich asking for extra tickets for this and upcoming away games.
The City head coach also spoke about this week’s social media video which showed Marco Stiepermann “losing” on the Wheel of Fortune, a game devised by the players instead of just accepting a fine for a minor offence. Marco lost and ended up having to wash Farke’s car, inside and out. Farke commented “It was a good performance from Marco Stiepermann. He was there with a clinical performance and I’m pretty pleased!”
