Manager Neil Adams has no fresh injury worries ahead of his side's Championship clash at Blackpool on Saturday.

The Canaries welcomed back midfielder Jonny Howson and striker Gary Hooper for Tuesday's shock 1-0 defeat at Shrewsbury Town in the third round of the Capital One Cup.

Both players started the game, with Hooper playing an hour and Howson the full match but neither have suffered an adverse reaction in their recovery from calf and knee injuries respectively.

With summer signings Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe, Ignasi Miquel and Gary O'Neil all starting the game as well, Adams should only be without long-term absentees Mark Bunn and Ryan Bennett for the trip to Bloomfield Road.

'We're all okay, a clean bill of health from Tuesday, which is really pleasing,' Adams told his club's official website.

'Fingers crossed we're going to have more or less everyone ready and available. With Jonny Howson and Gary Hooper, it's a case of getting their fitness back.

'Players are different; some are naturally fit and can step straight back in, others need a little bit more. We're really pleased that they both came through it.
