5/4 Norwich are 5/4 with Paddy Power to beat Sunderland this weekend
The central defender - who started 17 of Norwich's opening 20 league matches - made his comeback in a reserve team fixture on Tuesday.

And he has now set his sights on re-establishing himself in the first team at Carrow Road.

"There are good defenders in our squad," Turner told the club's official website.

"There will be four fit centre-halves now so there is going to be good competition for places, so whoever plays is going to have to perform to keep the shirt.

"It's a huge run of games we've got coming up. We have shown at home that we're capable of beating some of the best teams in the league, so it's important that we get back to that."

Norwich, who sit 15th, face relegation rivals Sunderland at Carrow Road on Saturday.
