Norwich City boss Glenn Roeder has no fresh injury worries ahead of tomorrow's televised Coca-Cola Championship clash with Colchester United at Layer Road.

Only long-term injury casualty Adam Drury and Matthew Gilks remain on the sidelines, although the Canaries have lost the services of defender Martin Taylor who has returned to Birmingham City after his loan spell at Carrow Road finished.

His place could be taken by Gary Doherty who missed the clash against Sheffield United through suspension, while midfielder Darel Russell could also return to the side after serving a one-match ban of his own.

Meanwhile, United boss Geraint Williams could make changes to his side after their 4-1 defeat at struggling Cardiff City last weekend.
