Russell Martin will continue in central defence for Norwich but the club's injury problems at the back look to be easing.

Central defenders Zak Whitbread and Daniel Ayala came through reserve matches and could be in contention to come off the substitutes' bench in this weekend's Premier League match against QPR.

Ritchie de Laet is also training again after recovering from a back injury. Striker James Vaughan is still sidelined with a long-term knee injury, as is centre-back Elliott Ward.

QPR captain Joey Barton is suspended, while Heidar Helguson is a doubt after playing only a limited part in training because of his eye injury.

Fitz Hall, Jay Bothroyd, Jason Puncheon and Adel Taarabt are back but Matt Connolly (ankle), Kieron Dyer (foot), DJ Campbell (foot) and Brian Murphy (calf) are definitely out.

Norwich (from): Ruddy, Naughton, Martin, Barnett, Tierney, Whitbread, Ayala, Crofts, Johnson, Fox, Bennett, Pilkington, Jackson, Hoolahan, Holt, Morison, Rudd, Drury, Surman, Wilbraham.

QPR (from): Kenny, Hall, Gabbidon, Taarabt, Traore, Bothroyd, Faurlin, Orr, Buzsaky, Young, Smith, Helguson, Wright-Phillips, Ferdinand, Puncheon.
