Skipper Mark Fotheringham has a 60-40 chance of being fit to return to the Norwich City side at Crystal Palace tomorrow.
Fotheringham has missed two games with a hamstring injury as the Canaries chalked up 1-1 draws at home to Charlton and Wolves.
“We are going to test him this morning. He has got a chance but no more than a chance,” said manager Glenn Roeder.

“If he's fit it would help us because he would play, but we'll see how he is. I won't take any chances because I've learned in the past it's best not to.
“He's recovering quicker than we though he would. Whether tomorrow comes a day too soon, we'll see.”

Roeder reported no other injury worries, but confirmed that midfielder Jimmy Smith, whose loan ended today, has returned to Chelsea for talks over his future - but could be back in time for FA Cup duty against Bury on Saturday if City can extend the loan.
Smith was substituted early in the second half against Wolves because of a calf strain.
