Norwich City manager Chris Hughton says he'll assess goalkeeper Mark Bunn over the next 48 hours before deciding whether he play in Saturday's Premier League game at Arsenal.

Bunn limped out of last Saturday's home game with Swansea with what many thought was a groin injury. He was replaced by Lee Camp.

But Hughton revealed that Bunn's injury wasn't as bad as first feared at his pre-match media briefing.

"Its getting better. We'll assess him as we have done all week, and he'll possibly train tomorrow (Friday). The news at the moment is better than last week,'' Hughton said.

"Whether it is sufficient we won't know, but as always we have to make sure we make the right decision."

But Hughton ruled out a possible return for England 'keeper John Ruddy. The 26 year old played his first game for five months last Monday for Norwich's development team at Newcastle.

Ruddy has been out since suffering a thigh injury at Everton last November, which required surgery.

"John will play another game on Monday and we'll assess from there," Hughton added.

"There's been no recurrence after the injury. Its been good to have him back in training and around things."
