Norwich will again be without full-back Marc Tierney (groin).

On-loan Manchester United defender Ritchie De Laet (back) is still out, while full-back Kyle Naughton is not eligible under the terms of his loan deal from Tottenham.

Midfielder Andrew Crofts has recovered from a bug, and could return as Paul Lambert freshens up the team, with reserve keeper Declan Rudd in contention along with back-up striker Aaron Wilbraham. Centre-forward James Vaughan and defender Elliott Ward (both knee) remain out.

Burnley will be without full-back Kieran Trippier.

Trippier serves a one-match ban following his dismissal in the 2-1 defeat to Leeds on Monday, although consolation arrived for the 21-year-old later in the week in the form of a permanent move to Turf Moor from Manchester City and a nomination for the Championship Player of the Month award.

Trippier's fellow defender Michael Duff missed the trip to Elland Road and remains a doubt with a hamstring problem.

Midfield duo Marvin Bartley and Keith Treacy have been laid low with illness this week, although they resumed training on Thursday and boss Eddie Howe expects to have the pair at his disposal at Carrow Road.

Norwich (from): Ruddy, Whitbread, Martin, Drury, Hoolahan, Ayala, Johnson, Pilkington, Bennett, Lappin, Morison, Jackson, Holt, Fox, Rudd, Wilbraham, Surman, Francomb.
