Carrow RoadTeam News

John Ruddy could return in goal for Norwich after five months on the sidelines with a thigh injury. Michael Turner (groin) is out but Sebastien Bassong’s ankle injury won’t prevent him from featuring.

West Brom could welcome back captain Chris Brunt after three games out with a knee complaint. Gabriel Tamas is expected to be available despite receiving a nasty head gash in the defeat at Manchester City. Goran Popov and Steven Reid are also fit. Marc-Antoine Fortune serves the final game of a three-match ban. 

Chris Hughton pre-game…“We need to capitalise on this next home game. The players are going to have to show plenty of character this week and we have to make sure we get a good result against West Brom next Sunday.”

Steve Clarke pre-game…“It’s up to us to go there and put on a good show. Our last two away games at Southampton and Manchester City were really good performances. If we go there and repeat those performances I think we can get a positive result.”

Match Statistic: West Brom have conceded 29% of their goals in the final 15 minutes of games this season – more than any other Premier League club.
