TEAM NEWS
Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe will be missing for a number of weeks for the Canaries after damaging his medial knee ligaments in Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Sheffield Wednesday.

Kyle Lafferty returns from his one-match suspension but Wes Hoolahan, Ryan Bennett and Mark Bunn (all ankle) remain on the injury list.

For Bolton, Liam Trotter (hamstring) has an outside chance of featuring in the matchday squad but goalkeeper Adam Bogdan (finger) is still a couple of weeks away from returning.
