No new worries for Canaries
Norwich manager Paul Lambert has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the Carling Cup visit of Premier League side Sunderland. Lambert made six changes for his first game in charge against Wycombe on Saturday and was rewarded with a 5-2 win at home to Wycombe. Bryan Gunn was sacked at Carrow Road just one game after signing 12 players in the summer and the writing appears to already be on the wall for a number of those brought in. Michael Theoklitos, Matthew Gill, Michael Nelson, Owain Tudur Jones and Simon Whaley did not even make the matchday 18 against the Chairboys while captain Gary Doherty was demoted to the bench. Teenage midfielder Korey Smith was given a shock start and scored while Grant Holt celebrated being given the captaincy with a brace. Lambert's only injury concerns are Rhoys Wiggins (knee), Kris Renton (foot) and Damon Lathrope (broken arm).
