Vital Quotes:

Blackpool Team News:

Wes Hoolahan a used substitute for the Southampton match may start after a chest infection he picked with the Republic of Ireland B squad. Parker was in Scotland with his ill mother, he may start on the bench after his place was taken by loanee Bartosz Slusarski. Tony McMahon who is on loan from Middlesborough picked up a hamstring the first half of the Saints game and should miss the match and may return to the North East to Boro.

A shuffle at the back may be required with Grayson having options in the form of Jackson and Crainey who replaced the injured McMahon on Saturday.

Player to watch: Andy Morrell

He missed a couple of sitters on Saturday at St. Mary`s, one hitting the post. It`s five games since a goal which came at the start of October against his old side Coventry. With Burgess nearing fitness and Parker back he`ll have to start hitting the net to keep his place in the side.

Norwich Team News:

Glenn Roeders fourth game in charge, after one win, one draw and two loses, and they sit bottom of the league, thats behind Preston too! His first win came on Saturday against Coventry, 2-0 goals from Chadwick and Cureton at Carrow Road. Star player Darren Huckerby is back after a three match ban but should start on the bench. Old timer Dion Dublin should recover from a dead leg in time to play.

The canaries have yet to win away from home, Like Preston and have only managed two away goals conceding 14, the worst away record in the championship.

Player to watch: Jamie Cureton

The pick of the summer signing from Colchester on a Free has only managed 4 league goals this seasons. The Bristol born striker bagged 24 last season and started well this season with 4 in two games. Norwich have yet to loss when Cureton has been on the score-sheet.

Doubtful Huckerby will start for us, though we may through him on as a sub.
