Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Bristol City vs Norwich lineups.

Bristol City

The Robins trashed Oxford United 5-1 at home in their first League Cup test this season. They have been solid in the league too despite not being able to win more than 1 game (W1 D2 L2). Last Friday Bristol drew 1-1 away vs Hull but were unfortunate and they should have won. 

Important centre-back Dickie returns after a ban and could start. Also, captain Weimann is fully fit again and is expected to gain precious match practice in the coming match. 

City are missing a key player from each area of the pitch though. Defender Atkinson, midfielder McCroire and striker Conway are out injured right now. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Bajic (GK), Pring, Dickie, Naismith, Roberts, King, Knight, Sykes, Weimann, Mehmeti, & Bell

Norwich

Norwich edged QPR 1-0 away from home in the first round of the League Cup. The Canaries are also enjoying a near-perfect start to their league campaign (W3 D1 L0) and last weekend they humiliated Huddersfield when beating them 0-4 away from home. 

Norwich’s main focus is on the league as they chase promotion so for the coming League Cup clash some of the fringe players and the youngsters could be given a chance to impress. Teenagers Fisher, Gibbs, Springett and Rowe could be among the starters again. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Gunn (GK), Omobamidele, Duffy, McCallum, Fisher, Gibbs, Sara, Nunez, Placheta, Rowe & Idah 

​Player to Watch: Jonathan Rowe

Norwich’s striker Jonathan Rowe bagged the winner in the first League Cup match and this should be enough to give him another start now. The 20-year-old is clearly behind the likes of Barnes, Sargent and Idah in the pecking order when it comes to Championship starts. That’s why Rowe will be extra motivated to shine in these League Cup contests and we can see him getting heavily involved in attack again, just as he did vs QPR.
