Key duo in contention

05 November 2010 11:30
Norwich will have key duo Grant Holt and Wes Hoolahan available for the Championship clash with Burnley. Captain Holt picked up a knock in the 3-1 defeat at Cardiff last weekend but is fine to lead the line for Paul Lambert`s side. Forward Hoolahan suffered a facial injury in scoring a diving header in Wales but after treatment carried on and is also fit to keep his place as the Canaries look to bounce back. Left-back Adam Drury is out with a calf strain which will keep him out for at least a fortnight so former Rangers man Steven Smith should continue in his absence. Central defenders Zak Whitbread and Michael Nelson (both ankle) are still sidelined and midfielder Andrew Surman remains a casualty with a knee injury. Midfielder Stephen Hughes is making good progress as he recovers from a recent ankle operation but will miss the next few games at least.
