Top goalscorer Grant Holt is set to return to the Norwich attack after completing his one-match suspension following his dismissal during the 2-0 victory over Wolves two weeks ago.
Simeon Jackson could also return to partner him in attack, whilst Aaron Wilbraham is also vying for a starting berth after netting his first-ever top-flight goal in their 2-1 defeat at Fulham last weekend.
Anthony Pilkington could also make a return from a hamstring problem, but James Vaughan (knee), Daniel Ayala (hamstring), Marc Tierney (groin) and Declan Rudd (ankle) are all a couple of weeks away.
In comparison, Everton boss David Moyes has very few injury concerns.
After recently being without midfield trio Seamus Coleman (thigh), Jack Rodwell (hamstring) and Royston Drenthe, but all three are close to a return and could be in contention for a place on the bench.
Leon Osman picked up a knock during last weekend’s 2-0 victory over West Brom but is expected to be fit to feature on Saturday.
