Hughton sticks with same eleven for Cardiff visit

CHRIS Hughton named an unchanged starting eleven for Saturday's visit of Cardiff City to Carrow Road.

That meant Gary Hooper made his first Premier League start on home turf, but Ricky van Wolfswinkel was able to take up a spot on the bench.

City's in-form central midfield trio of Alex Tettey, Leroy Fer and Jonny Howson continued, while Michael Turner and John Ruddy kept up their record of starting every league match this season.

Carlo Nash was named among the substitutes due to an injury sustained by Mark Bunn, while Johan Elmander also returned to the bench.

NORWICH CITY: Ruddy; Martin, Turner, Bassong (c), Olsson; Tettey, Fer, Howson; Snodgrass, Pilkington, Hooper. Subs: Nash (GK), Whittaker, Johnson, van Wolfswinkel, Elmander, Redmond, R Bennett.
