Luke Daley's injury frustration is set to continue this weekend, after the winger was ruled out for Norwich City's trip to Yeovil tomorrow (3pm).
The 20-year-old had made a promising comeback from his thigh injury in the 3-0 win at Southend last week, and came off the bench for a second time, against Oldham on Saturday.
But the City academy product suffered a recurrence of the injury in training this week and is set for another spell on the sidelines.
'It's disappointing considering he's just come back; he done great when he come on at Southend and he done fine when he came on on Saturday,' said Canaries boss Paul Lambert at Colney this morning.
And he admitted Daley's setback was a consequence of his management team trying to improve the squad's fitness levels from what they were when Lambert arrived.
'Yes, that's exactly what happens and that's the disappointing thing, because you know it can happen to them and you just have to take the consequences that hopefully we don't get too many,' he added.

As well as Daley, Lambert still has Declan Rudd (knee), Owain Tudur Jones (groin) and Michael Spillane (hamstring) out but George Francomb is back training, as is Matty Gill - although both are unlikely to figure for the first team action before getting a reserve game under their belts.
The Canaries travel to Huish Park looking for a 10th win in 12 League One outings, with Yeovil 13th in the table but having lost just twice at home in the league this season.
However, City were 4-0 victors in Somerset in the first round of the Carling Cup back in August thanks to a Grant Holt hat-trick - Bryan Gunn's final game in charge of Norwich.
