Norwich City boss Nigel Worthington wants more of the same from his team as they return to league action tomorrow.

At his press conference this morning, Worthington said he wants Carrow Road to continue being "a fortress" while also picking up good points away from home.

And he said his side would be on their mettle from the start against the Barnsley team that has won its last two away games.

"Barnsley have had a very good start and we've got to be on our mettle from minute one tomorrow. There's no doubt about that," he said.

"And we will. It's a good game for us and like I say we've got to be wide awake at three o'clock. You want to get as many points as you can and we want to keep up the good performances. We need to get as many wins as we can under our belt and you can never get them soon enough in any league. We've had a steady start and we want to keep that going.

"As I've said before to make a mark you need Carrow Road to be a fortress and pick the points up and pick good points up away from home to add to the tally."

But Worthington admitted Wednesday's win at Torquay had given him a few selection headaches for all the right reasons.

"The players played very well the other night and took the opportunity they've been looking for, but it's a very nice position to be in," he said.

The Northern Irishman added that all the players had looked bright in training yesterday, particular Robert Earnshaw, Youssef Safri, Darren Huckerby and Lee Croft who all missed the trip to Torquay.

Paul McVeigh faced a fitness test this morning ahead of tomorrow's match while Peter Thorne, Andrew Cave-Brown and Rossi Jarvis are all out while Matthieu Louis-Jean is not match fit.
