Norwich City head coach David Wagner has been speaking to the media ahead of the Canaries' game against Watford on Tuesday (19.45 GMT).

Here are some of the key points:

  • Wagner confirms Jonathan Rowe has a hamstring injury and will have a scan on Monday. He is definitely out of Tuesday's game against Watford

  • The head coach said he has plenty of options in forward areas and is being careful with the workload put on Josh Sargent

  • Defender Jack Stacey has recovered from illness and is fully fit. He almost missed the draw at QPR with a sickness bug

  • Centre-back Grant Hanley played against QPR but Wagner says they are keeping an eye on him, the Scotsman has missed most of the season through injury

  • Wagner said he's happy with the substitutions he made on Saturday in the QPR draw. Some fans criticised the head coach's game-management for that fixture

  • On Sydney van Hooijdonk: Wagner said the club need to take their time with integrating him. "People need to calm down", he says

  • On Watford: "After the away game (which Norwich lost) I am really looking forward to playing them again, they are a top team on the level of Leeds, Southampton and West Brom"
