Norwich City youngster Ryan Jarvis makes his long-awaited comeback from injury in tonight's reserve fixture against Watford.

The 19-year-old striker has been troubled by a niggling knee problem for much of the season and hasn't played in the first team since coming off the bench in the 3-0 defeat at Queen's Park Rangers on October 22.

He will be looking to get some much needed match action under his belt at Boreham Wood's Broughinge Road ground, as will defender Jason Shackell who has only just returned to full fitness after spending three-and-a-half months on the sidelines with an ankle injury.

A youthful City side will be aiming to end a run of seven successive defeats in the Premiership Reserve League this evening.

Keith Webb's side have only managed one goal during that losing streak, while conceding 20 at the other end - and they are still looking for their first away goal of the campaign.

It has been a tough learning curve for an inexperienced side. But although the odds have been regularly stacked against them they have kept plugging away and will be hoping for positive result when they take on a Watford team who will also be represented primarily by youngsters.

Tonight's fixture kicks off at 7pm.

City Reserves: Lewis, Spillane, Rossi Jarvis, Howlett, Shackell, Halliday, Smart, Ryan Jarvis, Martin, Fisk, Eagle. Subs: El Ouargui, Cave-Brown, Muddel, Bexfield, Arnold.
