Doubts over McVeigh and Drury

Paul McVeigh and Adam Drury remain Nigel Worthington's biggest injury concerns ahead of Sunday's derby showdown with Ipswich Town.

Full-back Drury has been struggling with a bout of gastroenteritis since the weekend - hence his half-time disappearance at Reading on Tuesday night - while the in-form McVeigh picked up a slight thigh knock in City's miserable midweek defeat.

At least Worthington has three more options to play with as he revealed that new signings Rob Earnshaw, Jonatan Johansson and Zesh Rehman will all be “in the squad” for Sunday's clash.

Whether all three will start was, he said, not for the Ipswich manager to know.

“I'm really looking forward to working with him,” said Worthington, with Earnshaw due to complete his first full training session with his new team-mates today after tidying up his affairs back in the Midlands yesterday.

“He's got great pace, good devil in his play and an edge to him as an individual. I think he's going to prove a very, very good signing for Norwich City Football Club.”

The proof of that will be tested for the first time at 11.15am on Sunday morning.
