Stephen Elliott will go straight into the Norwich squad after signing on loan from Preston.

The Republic of Ireland striker is down the pecking order at Deepdale and has joined the Canaries` promotion push for the rest of the season.

He is likely to have to settle for a place on the bench, although manager Paul Lambert could be tempted to rest Chris Martin, who has looked out of sorts in recent games.

Should that be the case then Oli Johnson is likely to start alongside leading goalscorer Grant Holt.

Midfielder Darel Russell completes his three-game suspension while Zak Whitbread (calf) and Adam Drury (thigh) remain sidelined although the latter did return to training this week.

Cody McDonald, who this week had his contract extended until the summer of 2012, is also absent with a thigh strain.

Yeovil manager Terry Skiverton will be hoping to name an unchanged side after back-to-back wins.

Those wins have lifted the Glovers to 12th, nine points clear of fourth-from-bottom Oldham and Skiverton will be keen to keep faith with his players.

He is sweating on the fitness of striker Dean Bowditch (hamstring), who was substituted in the second half of last Saturday's 1-0 home win over MK Dons as a precaution.

Ryan Mason was introduced from the bench as Bowditch's replacement and could be handed a start should the former Ipswich man not make it.

On-loan Brighton attacking midfielder Arron Davies is expected to keep his place in midfield after replacing Owain Tudur Jones, who was on loan at Yeovil from the Canaries before returning to Carrow Road.
