Nelson Oliveira still suspended for Norwich

Norwich will again be without striker Nelson Oliveira, who is in the middle of a three-match ban, for the visit of Birmingham.

Defender Steven Whittaker missed the 3-1 win over Wolves with a hamstring problem, so will be assessed.

Midfielders Graham Dorrans (knee) and Louis Thompson (pelvis/Achilles) continue their recovery.

Winger Matt Jarvis picked up a hamstring injury as he was coming back to fitness following knee surgery, while Youssouf Mulumbu remains away at the African Nations Cup with DR Congo.

Birmingham could give debuts to several new signings with boss Gianfranco Zola aiming for his first win.

Cheick Keita, Emilio Nsue and Kerim Frei could all be available for the game at Carrow Road while Dan Scarr has also signed from Stourbridge but is unlikely to go straight into the first team.

Strikers Clayton Donaldson and Greg Stewart will also be unavailable as they continue to work their way back from knee and Achilles injuries respectively.

Jacques Maghoma is on African Nations Cup duty after DR Congo made the quarter-finals.
