Burnley boss Eddie Howe could hand a debut to new signing Marvin Bartley in the game.

The 24-year-old midfielder this week signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Championship club after leaving Bournemouth for an undisclosed fee.

However, striker Martin Paterson looks set for a spell on the sidelines after he pulled up with a recurrence of a thigh strain during Tuesday's defeat at Doncaster.

New signing Charlie Austin made his debut in the 1-0 reverse at the Keepmoat Stadium and now looks set to be handed his home bow.

Midfielder Chris McCann (knee) remains a long-term absentee but the Clarets have no other major concerns as they bid to reignite their promotion challenge.

Norwich defender Adam Drury will return to the squad.

The experienced left-back missed the win over Millwall in midweek with a thigh injury and was also hampered by a cold.

But he has recovered from both ailments and should take his place in Paul Lambert's starting XI ahead of Marc Tierney.

Midfielder Andrew Surman remains out with his long-term knee problem but could make his return for the reserves next week.

Centre-back Elliott Ward is now fit after a calf problem and scored against Millwall.

Lambert has no other injury concerns as he looks to continue the Canaries' fine run of form which has seen them lose just once in 15 games.
