Marcus Bent could make his second debut for Sheffield United.

The striker scored 20 goals in just 48 league games for the Blades a decade ago and has returned for a second spell on loan from Birmingham.

Midfielder Leon Britton will not feature after completing a surprise move back to opponents Swansea but loan signings Joe Mattock and Shane Lowry could make their home debuts.

Defender Matt Lowton and midfielder Lee Williamson have both recovered from groin problems, while striker Richard Cresswell is fit again after a shoulder injury.

Winger Mark Yeates made a surprise return to the bench during last Saturday's goalless draw at Coventry after recently dislocating his shoulder and he could be considered from the start.

Norwich manager Paul Lambert has no fresh injury concerns.

Midfielder Henri Lansbury has returned to Arsenal at the end of his current loan spell while Lambert has allowed two fringe players to leave the club.

Defender Jens Berthel Askou has joined Championship rivals Millwall on a month-long loan spell while midfielder Owain Tudur Jones has joined Brentford on a similar deal.

Reserve goalkeeper Declan Rudd is recovering from a broken jaw so 18-year-old Jed Steer will once more deputise on the bench.

Midfielders Andrew Surman and Stephen Hughes are recovering well from knee injuries but will not be involved while centre-half Elliott Ward (calf) is also making good progress.

The Problem With FA Cup Shocks...

...is that the draw for the next round is pretty shocking. Blackburn v Stoke, anybody? We also have mails on LVG and ManUnited, who drew plenty under Fergie...

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
