Norwich defender Michael Spillane is eager to be back in first-team action for the Canaries in the next two weeks.

The 20-year-old has missed 19 games since injuring his hamstring over three months ago, and has admitted that it has been a frustrating time on the sidelines as Paul Lambert's side have climbed the League One table.

He said: "It's up to the physio and the gaffer but I want to get back in the first-team squad pretty soon. I will probably need one or two reserve games but I want to be back as soon as possible.

"I have been doing everything, really - sprinting, kicking - and just need maybe another two weeks to make sure.

"It was quite a bad injury. I knew that from the way it hurt when it went, but I'm the sort of person who thinks I'll be back in two weeks or three weeks.

"But it was worse than that and when I tried to come back I did it again. This time I've got to be really careful I don't snap it again."
