Hughton cagey over striker fitness

Last Updated: Thu, 24 Oct 2013 16:55

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has described Ricky van Wolfswinkel's chances of facing Cardiff City on Saturday as "touch and go".

The Canaries boss has ensured that the 24-year-old striker has been a regular fixture in his line-up in the Premier League since the Dutchman arrived at Carrow Road in the summer.

But, after the ex-Sporting striker missed the 4-1 defeat at Arsenal last week, the forward's foot injury may leave him sidelined again on Saturday.

Hughton has confirmed that Swedish striker Johan Elmander is available after the ex-Bolton forward recovered from his thigh injury.

"Ricky van Wolfswinkel is touch and go for Saturday," he said. "We'll assess him closer to the game.

"Johan Elmander has been training and is back fit."
