England goalkeeper John Ruddy is in contention to make his return for Norwich after five-months out with a thigh injury in Sunday's Barclays Premier League game against West Brom.

Winger Robert Snodgrass has recovered from cramp which saw him substituted in last weekend's late home defeat by Aston Villa.

Centre-half Michael Turner (groin) is, though, still sidelined.

West Brom captain Chris Brunt could return to action when his side face Norwich on Sunday.

The Northern Ireland international has missed three games with a knee injury but may be ready in time to play some part at Carrow Road.

Head coach Steve Clarke expects Gabriel Tamas to be available despite needing stitches to a head wound in the defeat by Manchester City in midweek.

Striker Marc-Antoine Fortune serves the final game of a three-match ban but Goran Popov and Steven Reid should be available after injury.

Provisional Squads

Norwich: Ruddy, Whittaker, Bassong, R Bennett, Martin, Pilkington, Tettey, Johnson, Snodgrass, Hoolahan, Holt, Bunn, Howson, Becchio, Garrido, Barnett, E Bennett, Jackson.

West Brom: Foster, Myhill, Jones, Brown, Ridgewell, McAuley, Popov, Reid, Olsson, Dawson, Thomas, Lukaku, Morrison, Dorrans, Rosenberg, Brunt, Yacob, Long, Odemwingie, Tamas, Mulumbu.
