Norwich City boss Glenn Roeder has some selection headaches of the positive kind for tomorrow's Coca-Cola Championship clash against Blackpool.

After a few days warm weather training in Spain, Roeder reported no new injuries worries at his weekly press conference at Colney this morning.

And he also has skipper Mark Fotheringham and veteran Dion Dublin returning from suspension.

The pair will be trying to force their way into a side which excelled against Barnsley, and Roeder admitted it will be tough for them to break into the starting 11 after last week's 1-0 victory.

“I am not sure yet whether I am going to name the team today or name it tomorrow, but Fozzy should be worrying, the two boys in the centre of midfield did well,” he said.

Darel Russell is still missing through suspension, while long-term injury victims Adam Drury and Luke Chadwick are still absent, as City look to bridge the gap of seven points between themselves and sixth-placed Charlton Athletic who currently occupy the last promotion play-off spot.

Blackpool will arrive at Carrow Road having disposed of the Addicks 5-3 at Bloomfield Road last weekend.

Seasiders manager Simon Grayson has one fresh injury doubt in the form of Gary Taylor-Fletcher who scored twice against Charlton but should be fit to start, although club captain Michael Jackson is facing up to another eight weeks on the sidelines after pulling a hamstring at Ipswich Town.

City will also be wary of Blackpool's on-loan striker Paul Dickov, who has scored five times in his last five games.
