Norwich manager Paul Lambert should have Russell Martin and Wes Hoolahan available for the visit of managerless Sheffield United.

Right-back Martin picked up a thigh injury during the 2-1 win at Coventry 10 days ago - as did forward Hoolahan.

Hoolahan came on as a second-half substitute at the Ricoh Arena but lasted just 14 minutes before limping off.

The Boxing Day trip to Crystal Palace was postponed and the extra few days of rest should have allowed the pair to regain fitness.

Defender Leon Barnett will miss out once again, after he was given an additional two-match ban for the red card he received during the 2-0 home defeat to Portsmouth at an FA Regulatory Commission hearing.

Wales midfielder Andrew Crofts is expected to return from illness and on-loan Arsenal midfielder Henri Lansbury is fit despite suffering a knock on his ankle. Left-back Adam Drury and defender Zak Whitbread are close to a return after calf and hamstring injuries respectively.

Sheffield United will be without Andy Taylor for the trip.

Left-back Taylor suffered a leg injury in just the 12th minute of their Boxing Day defeat to Hull and was carried off on a stretcher and has been ruled out of the trip to Norfolk.

Midfielder Stephen Quinn also had to go off in that game after slipping on the side of the pitch and banging his hip and he is doubtful.

Matty Lowton should replace Taylor, while fit-again Jamie Ward could be the man to come in should Quinn not make it.

Striker Richard Cresswell has served a three-match ban following his red card at Bristol City and he will come straight back into contention.

Caretaker boss John Carver has no other fresh injury or selection concerns as he searches for a win that would strengthen his claims of landing the job on a permanent basis.
