James Vaughan returns to the Palace squad.

The Everton striker, who scored five goals in 14 games for the Eagles earlier this term, has rejoined on loan until the end of the season.

Vaughan will vie with fellow January recruits Steffen Iversen and Jermaine Easter, as well as Pablo Counago, for a place in attack.

Defender Anthony Gardner suffered a head injury against Bristol City last weekend but managed to complete the game and will be patched up again.

Midfielders Darren Ambrose (hamstring) and Alex Marrow (ankle) came through their comebacks against the Robins unscathed, so full-back Lee Hills is now the only absentee with a knee injury.

Goalkeeper Julian Speroni will make his 200th appearance for the club.

Elliott Ward and Henri Lansbury return to the Norwich squad.

Defender Ward has missed the last six games with a calf injury while midfielder Lansbury has rejoined the Canaries on loan from Arsenal until the end of the season.

Midfielder Andrew Surman is back in training after a knee problem, but the trip to the capital comes too soon for him.

The Canaries can move second - and two points behind leaders QPR - if they emerge victorious at Palace, where they have lost nine and drawn three of their previous 12 visits.

Norwich are unbeaten in six Championship matches, but lost 2-1 to Palace at Carrow Road in October.
