Norwich City Vs Leeds United: Match Preview
Norwich manager Paul Lambert will select from an unchanged squad for the top-of-the-table encounter against Leeds.
Lambert has named the same side for the past two games which have yielded four points after a 3-1 victory at Huddersfield was followed by a 1-1 draw at Swindon.
Striker Luke Daley and Jens Berthel Askou are the only absentees while Zak Whitbread is available despite taking a kick to the foot in the reserves.
Lambert believes the Carrow Road crowd - the game has sold out - can steer them to victory and move them 11 points clear of their rivals with just eight games left.
He told the club`s official website: "This club is big every week and every team you play against is massive because of the amount of people that come and watch us so it`s a big game but so is everybody else we play.
"They`re a really good side - massive club and massive expectancy level and the tradition they`ve got. They`re still up there and still a top team but we`re at home and we`ll try and win the game.
"We`re playing well and I`ve got lads on top of their game. The crowd will be right behind us and we`ll try and win the game."
Leeds hope to have leading goalscorer Jermaine Beckford back in their line-up for their visit to Carrow Road and will include new signings Neill Collins and Sanchez Watt in their squad.
Beckford missed the home defeat to Millwall with a hamstring strain but manager Simon Grayson was this week confident the 27-goal forward will be available.
Arsenal teenager Watt has arrived on loan until the end of the season and could feature in midfield while Collins was drafted in as cover for Patrick Kisnorbo, whose Achilles injury sustained against Millwall has ruled him out for the rest of the season.
Goalkeeper Shane Higgs, out for most of the season due to a thigh problem, and defender Ben Parker, sidelined since the opening day with groin and knee injuries, could return to the substitutes' bench as Grayson's side chase only their seventh win in their last 19 league matches.M
