Match Preview

McDonald flies out Middlesbrough will be without Scott McDonald when they host high-flying Norwich. The striker will now link up with his Australia team-mates for the Asian Cup and could be missing for up to a month. Gary O'Neil, who has been linked with a January move away from Boro, was missing at Leeds on Saturday with an illness but he could come back into the reckoning. Midfielder Kevin Thomson is doubtful after taking a whack on the calf at Elland Road so Barry Robson, who shrugged off a virus to come on as a substitute, could start. Centre-half David Wheater needed stitches in a head injury but he will be patched up. Jonathan Franks (hernia) is not far away but Stephen McManus (ankle), Willo Flood (knee), Rhys Williams (pelvis) and Matt Kilgallon (back) remain on the sidelines. Norwich manager Paul Lambert will have Leon Barnett and Simon Lappin back from suspension. Centre-half Barnett completed a two-game ban by missing the 1-0 home win over leaders QPR while left-back Lappin served a one-match suspension. The duo could come in for Zak Whitbread and Adam Drury, who made their first starts after long injury absences against Rangers, although their fine displays will have given manager Paul Lambert a welcome selection dilemma. Wes Hoolahan will continue in midfield if David Fox is not fit. Defender Elliott Ward (calf) and midfielders Henri Lansbury (hamstring) and Andrew Surman (knee) are out. Lambert must also decide whether to stick with three forwards - Aaron Wilbraham, Chris Martin and Grant Holt - at The Riverside.

Match Report

Canaries grind out a point Norwich moved into the npower Championship automatic-promotion places after claiming a hard-earned point from a 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough at the Riverside. Heading into the clash with the confidence of having toppled leaders QPR last time out, the Canaries enjoyed a dream start as the prolific Grant Holt's sixth goal in as many games gave them an early lead. But Middlesbrough have been showing signs of life themselves recently, having claimed a creditable draw at Leeds on New Year's Day, and they grabbed a deserved share of the spoils through Russell Martin's own goal. Despite going into the game on the back of three successive victories, City manager Paul Lambert opted to make three changes to the XI that overcame the Hoops on Saturday. It did not affect the Canaries, though, and they went ahead in the 12th minute. Neat build-up play in midfield saw Martin drive up the field before picking out Aaron Wilbraham with a hopeful aerial ball. The former MK Dons man, playing only his second match since moving to Carrow Road last week, rose well and flicked the ball onto Holt, who, having ghosted in behind David Wheater, finished from the tightest of angles. Not content with one, the visitors pushed for a second and nearly got it soon after, but Holt and Owain Tudur Jones saw goal-bound efforts blocked. Boro have been looking increasingly resilient under Tony Mowbray in recent times and they soon restored parity, albeit in somewhat fortuitous circumstances, as Martin unfortunately deflected Julio Arca's ball past his own goalkeeper. That seemed to spur the home side on and they could have taken the lead when Joe Bennett hit just wide from 25 yards. The game entered a lull thereafter, with the two sides battling for the initiative. Norwich could have gone into the break ahead, but, after capitalising on a mistake from Matthew Bates, Wilbraham saw his excellent effort turned around the post by Jason Steele. Lambert decided to bring on Chris Martin at the interval as his side searched for an all-important second goal and the move almost paid instant dividends as the forward saw an effort blocked. However, as the game wore on, chances became increasingly few and far between, with both sides seemingly content to play neat football, rather than seize control. It was Middlesbrough who looked the more likely to go on and claim the points in the closing stages, with John Ruddy brilliantly denying Barry Robson before Kris Boyd headed just wide from the resulting corner. Wheater thought he had earned his side the win with five minutes to go, but he saw his header ruled out for a push. Julian Hoyte then hit the post for the hosts as the Canaries were left hanging on at the end.
