Striker Antoine Sibierski appears to be the only injury worry for Norwich City ahead of tomorrow's Coca-Cola Championship clash at Burnley.

The Frenchman was withdrawn at half-time during the defeat Derby County on Tuesday, where he had his right knee heavily strapped, and boss Glenn Roeder said Sibierski had a serious of niggles after taking “ a bit of a battering” in recent games.

The was some good news on the injury front however, with defender Jon Otsemobor and midfielder Mark Fotheringham both fit for action.

It leaves Roeder with something of a selection headache for the game at Turf Moor against the side fifth in the league.

Otsemobor may replace Elliott Omozusi at right back, while Darel Russell may be moved up front if Sibierski is absent, leaving David Bell in line for his first start, while Fotheringham may also be included at the expense of Wes Hoolahan following his poor showing at Pride Park.
