Norwich's out-of-favour duo Gary Doherty and Wes Hoolahan could feature in today's Totesport.com Combination East Division fixture at Peterborough (2pm).

Both were again omitted from Paul Lambert's squad for the League One defeat at MK Dons but were included in a strong line up for last week's opening 5-0 reserve win over Southend for Ian Crook's second string.

City's academy scholars are likely to get another chance to impress with Lambert facing an injury headache ahead of table topping Charlton's League One visit to Carrow Road on Saturday.

Midfielder Stephen Hughes was carried off on a stretcher after 20 minutes of Monday's televised 2-1 defeat at the Dons with an Achilles problem after a challenge by ex-Canary winger Luke Chadwick.

With Darel Russell (calf), Matthew Gill (knee) and Owain Tudur Jones (calf) all troubled by injury, Lambert could have limited options across the centre of the park for the Addicks' visit.
