Norwich v Coventry preview

Coventry will assess Keiren Westwood as late as possible.
The Republic of Ireland goalkeeper missed last weekend’s goalless draw at home to Reading with a shoulder injury and City will wait and see how he is ahead of the Carrow Road clash.
Youngster Michael Quirke will again step in if required for Westwood, who is out of contract in the summer but is again mulling over a new deal.
Striker Marlon King (knock) and left-back Chris Hussey (illness) both returned to face the Royals and are again okay for this weekend.
Defender Richard Keogh, signed from Carlisle last summer, has the chance to play in every minute of every league game in his first season with the club should he complete the game on Saturday.
The Sky Blues, currently 17th, will also record their best league finish since 2006 should they manage to finish any higher than they are now.
Norwich manager Paul Lambert may be tempted to give some of his fringe players an outing when Coventry visit Carrow Road.
The Canaries secured a return to the Premier League courtesy of Monday night’s 1-0 victory at Portsmouth thanks to Simeon Jackson’s second-half winner.
Whether Lambert selects the same starting XI for the fifth successive match remains to be seen.
If he decides to change it, on-loan Liverpool striker Daniel Pacheco could come in as might Arsenal loanee Henri Lansbury, who came on for the last 12 minutes against Pompey.
Defender Zak Whitbread was a doubt for the trip to Fratton Park with a hip problem but having come through the game unscathed should start once again.
