The Canaries will have the top half of the table in their sights as the aim to make it 14 games unbeaten against Leicester City at the Walkers Stadium tomorrow (3pm).

Jon Otsemobor looks set for a recall to the starting line-up at right-back, following Matthew Bates' season-ending knee injury led to his return to Middlesbrough. Andrew Cave-Brown and Alex Pearce, on-loan from Reading, are expected to travel with the squad as defensive cover.

Mo Camara should also return to left-back after being rested for the draw with Hull at Carrow Road on Tuesday night, meaning Kieran Gibbs is likely to drop back to the bench - depending on which five of his seven loan signings Roeder includes in his squad of 16.

Striker Jamie Cureton will play some part in Saturday's Coca-Cola Championship match after making a rapid recovery from an operation to remove his appendix less than two weeks ago. Ched Evans has also beaten the virus which almost prevented the Welshman from taking part on Tuesday. The 19-year-old is expected to start alongside the in-form Dion Dublin, who will be making a final appearance against his boyhood club before retiring in the summer.

While Norwich having won their last three away games, Leicester, currently two places and two points above the Championship drop zone, are struggling and manager Ian Holloway is coming under increasing pressure to stop the Foxes' current decline.

Steve Howard and DJ Campbell are expected to start up front for the Foxes, while Radostin Kishishev could appear in defence for the first time since October, as Leicester aim to end a run of three straight defeats.
