Three Norwich City players returned to training today after being kept on the sidelines all week - but all three should be fit for tomorrow's Championship trip to Sheffield United.

Winger David Bell, who missed the FA Cup tie at Charlton with an ankle injury, plus defender Elliott Omozusi and midfielder Matty Pattison - both substituted at half-time at The Valley with “dead legs” - are all expected to be available for the clash with the Blades.

“We've had three that have not been out training this week but they'll all be OK,” said manager Glenn Roeder.

“David Bell is one of the three but he'll be training this morning and we think he'll be OK. It will be a major surprise if he's not.”

Adam Drury, another to suffer a thigh injury at Charlton, was back in training yesterday as City made use of the undersoil heating at Carrow Road to get outside for the first time this week after sessions in the Colney dome.

Drury will be fit but his place in the centre of defence will go to Jonathan Grounds, who has returned from Middlesbrough for a two-month loan. Drury and Ryan Bertrand will contest the left-back slot.

City will be bidding for their first double of the season after beating United 1-0 at Carrow Road in September with a stoppage-time goal from Lee Croft.
