Adam Drury could be set for his first start in 10 months when Norwich open their Championship campaign at Coventry on Saturday.

Manager Glenn Roeder has concerns over Ryan Bertrand, who has ankle ligament damage and should he decide not to risk him then Drury will come in at left back.

“We won't take a chance with him - but he has to be able to strike the ball and if he can do that he will be fine,” said Roeder. “All Adam is lacking is match practice.

“I think Adam has got a better chance.”

Drury's recovery from a knee injury sustained against Bristol City last October was followed by a hamstring problem which has meant him missing all of City's pre-season games.

New signing Troy Archibald-Henville will travel, although Roeder is expected to pair new boys Dejan Stefanovich and John Kennedy in the heart of his defence.
