World news – GB – Norwich City v Preston North End team news – Daniel Johnson not in the squad and Jayden Stockley having to isolate


Preston North End boss Alex Neil admits he’s surprised crowd will be allowed to watch game at Norwich City

Johnson, subject of interest from Rangers, travelled with his PNE team-mates to Norfolk but didn’t make the match day squad because of a groin injury.

Striker Stockley was due to play but had to be taken out of the squad at lunchtime after North End were informed a member of his family had come into contact with someone displaying Covid-19 symptoms.

Under the health protocol, Stockley now has to isolate. Arrangements have been made for him to travel home separately from the squad.

Stockley did test positive for Covid-19 in early June when football was preparing for the restart. But he still has to isolate.

North End manager Alex Neil made five changes to the side which beat Derby County 2-1 in the Carabao Cup last Tuesday night.

Ben Pearson, Ben Davies, Ryan Ledson, Tom Barkhuizen and Scott Sinclair came into the starting XI.

Joe Rafferty kept his place at left-back in preference to Andrew Hughes, Patrick Bauer likewise in the centre of defence after Jordan Storey started the Championship opener against Swansea.

Norwich: Krul, Aarons, Zimmermann, Godfrey, Quintilla, McLean, Skipp, Cantwell, Dowell, Hernandez, Pukki. Subs: Rupp, Hugill, Placheta, Tettey, Gibson, Idah, McGovern.

PNE: Rudd, Fisher, Bauer, Davies, Rafferty, Pearson, Ledson, Barkhuizen, Browne, Sinclair, Maguire. Subs: Harrop, Gallagher, Storey, Hughes, Bodin, Potts, Ripley.
