Match Preview

Same squad for Foxes Leicester have no new injury problems as they look to get their play-off challenge back on track at home to promotion-chasing Norwich. On-loan Chelsea defender Patrick van Aanholt and veteran striker Steve Howard remain the only absentees with thigh and ankle injuries respectively. Ben Mee was given the nod to replace van Aanholt against QPR on Saturday and after impressing against the league leaders there is every chance he could retain his place at left-back, although Bruno Berner is another option for manager Sven-Goran Eriksson. Paul Gallacher, Lloyd Dyer and Martyn Waghorn will be hoping for recalls after coming off the bench at Loftus Road. The Foxes have slipped five points off the play-off places after three matches, including two defeats, without a win. Norwich have a doubt over defender Zak Whitbread. The American centre-half had to be replaced during Saturday`s draw with Preston after injuring his back in a heavy fall and manager Paul Lambert has described him as `touch and go` to face the Foxes. On-loan Blackpool man Rob Edwards will make his first start for the Canaries if Whitbread is ruled out. Midfielder Simon Lappin has returned to training after surgery on his appendix but will not return to action for several weeks, while striker Chris Martin remains on the sidelines. Martin (hamstring) is a fortnight away from a return, so captain Grant Holt will continue on his own up front. Holt grabbed his 16th of the season against Preston but Aaron Wilbraham has not found the net in 12 appearances for the club and third option Simeon Jackson last scored in October.

Match Report

Hoolahan makes amends in City success Wes Hoolahan went from villain to hero as Norwich registered a fantastic 3-2 victory over Leicester at the Walkers Stadium. The Irish playmaker missed a second-half penalty during the 1-1 draw with Preston at Carrow Road on Saturday when he attempted to nonchalantly chip the ball in. But he made amends when he scored one and was fouled for another penalty as Norwich extended their unbeaten run to six games and ended Leicester`s unbeaten home league run which stretched back to September. Norwich took the lead in the 21st minute when Hoolahan headed in Andrew Surman`s corner from six yards, his 10th goal of the season. But the lead lasted just two minutes as Richie Wellens levelled with his first goal since December, nodding in Bruno Berner`s delivery. The Canaries moved back in front four minutes into the second half from the penalty spot. Hoolahan was brought down by Matt Oakley and Holt, who took over penalty-taking duties, made no mistake for his 17th of the season. They extended their advantage a minute before the hour when the recalled Aaron Wilbraham, on his 13th appearance, scored his first goal for the club with a neat finish. Substitute Paul Gallagher netted a consolation deep into injury time for the Foxes. Leicester, without a win in three matches, had the first opening but Souleymane Bamba headed a Matt Oakley corner wide. Norwich, who have failed to score in only four of their 35 Championship outings this season, responded but David Fox was also off target with a 25-yard free-kick. Aiyegbeni Yakubu had gone three games without a goal for Leicester and headed over from 12 yards while strike-partner Darius Vassell then had the first shot on target which was comfortable for Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy. The game then sparked into life with two goals in three minutes. First, Hoolahan made some amends when he nodded Norwich ahead but Leicester produced an immediate response through Wellens. Andrew Crofts came close to restoring Norwich`s lead when his header from another Surman centre just cleared the bar. Play swung from end to end as first Yakubu had a weak shot easily saved by Ruddy before Andy King`s effort trickled wide, the latter then heading wide from close range. In between, Wilbraham could not keep his header from Marc Tierney`s cross on target for the Canaries. Yakubu had a further two attempts which both failed to trouble Ruddy while Surman first shot wide before being denied by Foxes keeper Ricardo in first-half injury time. Norwich made an excellent start to the second half when Holt converted from the spot, his fifth goal in seven matches, The captain then teed up Surman, who headed wide, before Vassell fired into the side-netting and Bamba shot straight at Ruddy. Wilbraham then cut inside and finished past Ricardo at his near post to hand Norwich a two-goal cushion. Leicester nearly pulled a goal back with 21 minutes left but Ben Mee headed wide with Ricardo then preventing Wilbraham from making it 4-1. Gallagher did net a second for the Foxes but it was too late.
