Norwich City handed major selection boost as attention turns to Preston North End clash



Kenny McLean has declared himself as available for the clash with Preston North End on Good Friday.

The Norwich City man is currently on international duty with Scotland and could feature in their World Cup qualifier against the Faroe Islands on Wednesday evening.

If the winger does feature then it means that he could have to turn out for the Canaries less than 48 hours later after representing his country, but while that would certainly be a huge ask, the 29-year-old says that he has no problem with doing so.

Speaking to the Pink Un, McLean said: “Nobody will go into the manager and say they don’t want to play, that is a fact.

“Everybody wants to play as much as possible and I’m no different.

“If I come back fit and healthy from Scotland, I’ll be ready, if selected. If not, I’ll be there for the boys.”

McLean added: “We’ve got a few on the Wednesday night, so hopefully everybody can recover as quickly as possible.

“We’ve got plenty of players who can come in and do a job if needs be, the manager will pick a team that’s strongest to go and get a result at Preston.

“We’ll see when that comes. We’ll be ready for Preston when it comes – we won’t have any excuses.”

The verdict

This is exactly what supporters want to hear.

Norwich City are facing a massive test against Preston North End and so they will need all of their players available if possible.

It’ll be interesting to see if McClean will be involved for both club and country this week but fans will no doubt be delighted with his professionalism.
