Norwich City's second string are back in action tonight, with Conference outfit Stevenage Borough providing the opposition at Carrow Road (7.30pm).

Keith Webb's team have not seen action since suffering their first defeat of the Pontins Holiday Combination season, a 3-0 reverse against Northampton Reserves on September 20.

With a number of first team players on the injury list, Webb is again restricted to Academy youngsters and three young pros, although Mathieu Louis-Jean's comeback from injury continues.

“We are looking for Matthieu to push on now,” said Webb. “We are intending to give him the full 90 minutes against Stevenage and if everything goes to plan the hope is that he will be challenging for a place in the first team in the not too distant future.”

Norwich Reserves: Arnold, Louis-Jean, Bexfield, Kelly, Halliday, Quaye, Smart, Fisk, El Ouargui, Martin, Eagle. Subs: Lathrope, Eames, Muddel.
