Norwich vs. Blackpool

Carrow Road



Norwich V Pool

Pool look to beat Norwich at the second time of asking in the F.A. cup, with the prize an away fixture at Premiership Champions Chelsea.

Norwich Team News:

Peter Grant has a similar problem to Simon Grayson with eligible players, Scottish new-boys Mark Fotheringham and Simon Lappin both signed since the first leg so cant play in the second leg.

Adam Drury is set to replace Lappin, Jason Shackell might be able to make a appearance after recovering from an ankle injury.

Player to watch: Dion Dublin

The experienced defender / striker limped off for Norwich in the first leg but since returned to the side scoring a cracking volley against Leeds in a 2-1 win.

Blackpool Team News:

Grayson won`t be able to pick Simon Gillett or Paul Rachubka who signed after the first leg. There is speculation that striker Andy Morrell is a doubt with a injury but apart from Gillett and Rachubka Grayson has a full squad to pick from.

Player to watch: Wes Hoolahan

Hoolahan started to show glimpses of form again in the Brentford game after having a winter break from back and calf injuries.
