Norwich defender Russell Martin was passed fit from an ankle problem to face West Ham in today’s lunchtime Barclays Premier League clash at Carrow Road.

However, there was no place for winger Antony Pilkington, as Andrew Surman came into the starting XI, with on-loan Tottenham striker Harry Kane among the substitutes.

West Ham were without injured England frontman Andy Carroll, so Carlton Cole led the attack.

New signing Matt Jarvis and Yossi Benayoun, back for a second spell with the Hammers on loan from Chelsea, were on the bench.

Norwich: Ruddy, Russell Martin, Barnett, Bassong, Garrido, Snodgrass, Howson, Johnson, Surman, Holt, Jackson.

Subs: Rudd, Turner, Hoolahan, Fox, Morison, Tierney, Kane.

West Ham: Jaaskelainen, Demel, Reid, Collins, O’Brien, Diame, Noble, Vaz Te, Nolan, Taylor, Cole.

Subs: Henderson, McCartney, Tomkins, Jarvis, Maiga, Benayoun, Diarra.

Referee: Chris Foy (Merseyside)
