Nelson Oliveira is going to miss the visit of Wolves to Carrow Road on Tuesday night.
That is hardly a surprise after we saw Nelson go down against Derby, shortly after coming on and Timm Klose had equalised. The Portuguese international has a calf strain, although it doesn`t look serious and he could make the match at Bolton on Saturday, said Daniel Farke when he spoke to the media at Colney.

This is the latest in a serious of niggling injuries that have kept the in-form striker out of Daniel Farke`s starting XI. Oliveira`s struggles have been hugely frustrating for the fans, never mind the player himself or his Head Coach. Nelson is easily the biggest threat we have up front but he just can`t seem to catch an even break at the moment.
In other news, Ivo Pinto took a heavy knock against Derby and couldn`t run or train on Sunday but Farke thinks he`ll be okay for the Wolves game.
Fatigue was clearly an issue in the final quarter of Saturday`s home defeat to Derby and we can only hope that there has been enough rest gained since Saturday to make us a little sharper again. The consolation is that although Wolves will be a tough test and they have an excellent away record, they have, like Norwich, also played 390 minutes in just six days.
On the plus side, the Derby and Wolves games are at home for Norwich but this will be Wolves` second away game in quick succession after they suffered a 2-1 loss at QPR at the weekend.
