Norwich will have Elliott Ward back in the side for the visit of managerless Middlesbrough.
Centre-half Ward missed the 2-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace in midweek through a one-game suspension - the first ban of his career - but is expected to come back in against Boro.
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 is in line to keep his place.
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 - who has played just four minutes of Championship football for the Canaries all season - has now had an operation on his ankle injury which will keep him out for two months.
