After an unplanned trip to the dentist, Robbie Brady is good to go for Norwich City in their key relegation battle against Swansea City today.

Brady lost two teeth after an accidental clash with team-mate Gary O'Neil in a midweek loss to Chelsea but Canaries boss Alex Neil says the Dubliner has been cleared to take part.

"Robbie's mouth was a bit of a mess after the challenge," said Neil. "He severely chipped two teeth and pretty much nearly lost another one. He has had a wee bit of dentistry work to try and fix that. Gary has a two-inch gash on his head, more cosmetic, that anything else."

Brady's compatriot Harry Arter was also a casualty in midweek and Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is unsure if Arter will be fit to face Newcastle away. "We had two players come off on Tuesday, Harry Arter and Joshua King are both very doubtful for the Newcastle game. They will both travel with the squad but a late decision will be made on them, so we'll have to wait and see," said Howe.
