Whitbread poised for Canaries bow

15 January 2010 11:43
Whitbread comes into the squad after signing from Millwall last week and recovering from the hip injury which has blighted his season.

Midfielder Stephen Hughes is also back in contention after he missed the last two matches with a calf injury.

Defender Michael Spillane is out but set to resume full training on Monday after more than three months out with a hamstring injury - a timely return after full-back Jon Otsemobor's move to Southampton on Thursday.

Lambert can expect a hostile reception from Colchester fans after he left the club to take over at Carrow Road just days after masterminding a 7-1 win over the Canaries on the opening day of the season.

The two clubs have yet to agree compensation for Lambert's move and he is prepared for a vocal welcome.
