Town youngster set for bench role

Keane made 10 changes for the Carling Cup tie with Shrewsbury in midweek as he fielded a host of youngsters with 16-year-old Wickham scoring twice. The Town boss is likely to restore Richard Wright, Pim Balkestein, Damien Delaney, Jonathan Walters, Lee Martin and Jon Stead to his starting XI. But he will be without midfielder David Norris after he sustained a knee injury during last weekend's 2-1 defeat at Coventry and, while the club are awaiting results of a scan, they expect the former Plymouth man to be out for some time. Captain Gareth McAuley and new signing Tamas Priskin are both expected to report back from international duty unscathed but Ben Thatcher is still not fit after his knee injury. Forward Pablo Counago remains out with a groin problem while Luciano Civelli is out until 2010 with a serious knee injury.
