Hughes still not ready for Norwich

The Scotland international missed last week's win at Wycombe because of a calf injury he suffered when he had to be substituted during the 2-0 Boxing Day home win over Millwall and is not yet ready to return. Lambert said: "He's doing fine but he's not 100% and I think the weekend will be too early for him." Teenager Korey Smith took Hughes' place in midfield at Wycombe and scored the winner at Adams Park after missing three games with a thigh strain so is likely to continue in an unchanged side. Defenders Jens Berthel Askou (foot) and Michael Spillane (hamstring) remain sidelined and midfielder Owain Tudur Jones is also out with a groin strain as the Canaries look for a win which could see them move three points clear of Charlton in second place.
