Midfielder Dickson Etuhu should be back in contention for Norwich City's Good Friday trip to Hull.

Etuhu missed only his third match of the season as the Canaries crashed 3-0 at Colchester in the Coca-Cola Championship on Saturday.

But the 24-year-old seems to be over the bout of illness afflicting him and manager Peter Grant is confident he will be available for the game at the KC Stadium.

“Dickson was back in today and feeling better and hopefully he'll be OK for this week,” said Grant last night.

“Four or five of the boys had it, just a bug that was going around, but I don't want to use that as an excuse.”

Skipper Adam Drury has a chance of returning after an ankle injury kept him out of the trip to Layer Road.

“Adam is progressing very quickly and we're very pleased with his progress. It will be touch and go but he's got a chance,” said Grant.

However, full-back Jürgen Colin is rated “very doubtful” with a groin strain he aggravated in training on Friday, while striker Chris Brown is not expected to be ready after missing seven matches with a persistent hamstring problem.

As to whether he will wield the axe after the Colchester defeat, the City boss said: “We'll just see who is available. Adam and Dickson are both big, big players for us. I'm always hoping everybody will be available.

“I thought up until half-time we were doing OK. I was going to change it, freshen it up at the start of the second half and perhaps I should have done it sooner because the second half was completely the opposite and a massive disappointment. We were very, very poor.”
