Forestieri ‘on way back’ … Hutch ruled out

Fernando Forestieri could return for Wednesday either at Rotherham on Tuesday night or against Newcastle on Saturday.

Forestieri has missed the last three games – defeats to Villa and Reading and a draw at Barnsley – with a knee injury but Carlos Carvalhal said on Monday: “We have very good expectations for Fernando Forestieri. Very, very good expectations between tomorrow and the game on Saturday that he can be involved.

“I’m not saying it is 100 per cent but the expectations are very high to be back to the team tomorrow or Saturday.”
However, Sam Hutchinson will miss the Rotherham game after limping off at Barnsley on Saturday.
