Norwich boss Smith praises Rashica, delivers Normann update

Norwich City boss Dean Smith praised Milot Rashica for their 0-0 draw with Wolves.

Rashica caused plenty of problems for Wolves throughout the game, carrying the ball well and getting into dangerous areas.

“He certainly did," Smith said. “He caught the goalkeeper off guard once as well when he dragged one past the near post. If it was on target he'd have scored because the keeper didn't see that coming.

“He set one up for Ruppy as well and his pace will cause problems for the opposition."

Lukas Rupp came on as a first-half replacement for Mathias Normann, who was forced off with an injury.

“I think it's a recurrence of his pelvic injury that he's had," Smith explained. “He said he was feeling pain there so he had to come off and I'm aware that he's had an injury there before.

“We'll assess him and see how he goes. The good thing is we've got a fairly healthy squad and they're all pushing for places at the moment, so it's really tough leaving players out, such has been the application and quality in training."
