NORWICH CITY should have a fully-fit Grant Holt available for tomorrow’s game at Anfield.
The 31-year-old who scored in last season’s 1-1 draw of the same fixture, has four league goals to his name this term but has not started any of Norwich’s last four games. The striker had been sidelined with a hamstring injury but came off the bench in Saturday’s 0-0 home draw with Newcastle United.
Canaries’ boss Chris Houghton said: “We've had to tread carefully with Grant over the past couple of weeks.
“Most would have liked to have seen us start with Grant.
“We hope now he has a good week's training and will be available for the weekend’s game."
All six of Norwich's Premier League wins this season have come with Grant Holt in the starting line-up – losing five of the six games he has not started.
Houghton’s squad may be boosted by defender Steven Whittaker (hip) and winger Andrew Surman (knee) who could both be in contention for returns.
However, Welsh striker Steve Morrison is unlikely to be fit for the game due to a thigh injury picked up over the festive period and England goalkeeper John Ruddy remains a long-term absentee after surgery on his thigh injury.
