Norwich manager Paul Lambert has no fresh injury worries ahead of the visit of the Swans.

Andrew Crofts will be included in the squad despite picking up an ankle knock on international duty with Wales.

Zak Whitbread is doing well after a hamstring injury but is unlikely to feature, while Elliott Ward, Daniel Ayala and James Vaughan (all knee) are out.

Swansea are boosted by the return to full fitness of midfielder Leon Britton for their trip to face the Canaries.

Britton missed the home win over Stoke with a back problem, but has been passed fit for the visit to Carrow Road, although he may have to settle for a place on the bench after Joe Allen, Mark Gower and Wayne Routledge impressed against the Potters.

Ashley Williams and captain Garry Monk are again the only available centre-halves as manager Brendan Rodgers continues to await clearance to bring in Greece defender Vangelis Moras on a short-term contract.

Alan Tate (broken leg) is a long-term absentee while Steven Caulker will return from knee surgery in the next four to six weeks.

Midfielder Kemy Agustien should be back after a hamstring injury in two weeks.

Norwich (from): Ruddy, Tierney, Barnett, R Martin, Naughton, Fox, Johnson, Hoolahan, Crofts, Pilkington, Holt, Bennett, Morison, C Martin, de Laet, Surman, Rudd.

Swansea (from): Vorm, Williams, Taylor, Britton, Graham, Sinclair, Dyer, Dobbie, Routledge, Monk, Lita, Moore, Bessone, Moreira, Rangel, Allen, Tremmel, Gower, Richards, Lucas.
