Match Preview: Norwich City v Blades

Last updated : 30 January 2004 By @blades_mad1889

Darren Huckerby in action against Blades last season is Canaries danger man.
Defender Chris Morgan is a major doubt for the Blades, the former Barnsley man sustained a knee injury during the 2-0 defeat at Derby County.

Skipper Robert Page and Midfielder Mark Rankine are both slightly injured but should make the starting 11, although new loan signing Carl Robinson could make his Blades debut ahead of Rankine.

Phil Jagielka will be back in the team after a two game absence while veteran Stuart McCall should also return after recovering from a gashed knee. Ashley Ward will once again miss out against his old club due to injury.

Canaries striker Mathias Svensson will be back for the Carrow Road club after he has been out of action following knee surgery. Mark Rivers and Ryan Javis are definatly out.
