Norwich boss Paul Lambert again has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the Foxes' visit to Carrow Road.

The former Colchester boss was full of praise for his side despite the 2-0 defeat at home to Hull on Saturday and is unlikely to make many changes.

Andrew Surman (knee) and Michael Nelson (ankle) remain the only two absentees as defensive duo Steven Smith and Zak Whitbread have returned to full training following ankle and calf injuries respectively.

Smith was in the matchday squad against the Tigers but has yet to make his debut, while Simon Lappin is expected to continue in midfield following his return to the starting line-up at the expense of Anthony McNamee.

Simeon Jackson is pressurising Chris Martin for a place up front alongside captain Grant Holt as the Canaries look for a return to winning ways.

Leicester defender Miguel Vitor is suspended for the trip to Carrow Road.

The Portuguese was sent off after half an hour of the 6-1 hammering at Portsmouth on Friday night, meaning Jack Hobbs is likely to be recalled as Michael Morrison's central defensive partner.

That is unlikely to be the only change following the Fratton Park fiasco, with boss Paulo Sousa having goalkeeper Carl Ikeme, midfielders Julio Moreno, Franck Moussa and Ritchie Wellens and forwards Matty Fryatt and Paul Gallagher ready to come into the side should he wish.

Steve Howard was arguably the only player to emerge from the Pompey game with any credit, and the big striker could keep his place.
