Academy prospect Josh Martin has been named on the bench for Norwich City’s FA Cup fourth round tie at Burnley, with both teams making sweeping changes to their starting XIs.

The Canaries make seven changes, with loan keeper Ralf Fahrmann making just his third start and Jamal Lewis returning at left-back, with Sam Byram switching to the right.

Mario Vrancic and Tom Trybull come into central midfield and Onel Hernandez and Marco Stiepermann join Lucas Rupp in attacking midfield.

Switzerland international Josip Drmic makes his first start for the Canaries but Adam Idah is not involved, despite his hat-trick at Preston in the previous round.

Teemu Pukki is named on the bench, with Republic of Ireland U21 star Idah linked with loan moves to Charlton and Doncaster recently.
