Norwich will be looking for a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals when they take on Leicester at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Norwich City are tipped by many to go far in this year's FA Cup.

The Canaries take on Leicester City in the fifth round having won over many fans with their balanced style of football as they occupy eighth place in the Premier League.

In contrast, Leicester's promotion charge from the Championship has taken a turn for the worse in 2012 after slipping to 12th.

Steve Morison could return to the Norwich lineup after starting on the bench for last weekend's win at Swansea City. Grant Holt is also likely to begin in attack.

Foxes boss Nigel Pearson may turn to the experience of January signing Wes Morgan following their 3-2 defeat at Watford on Saturday.

Current form:

Norwich: WWDLWW
Leicester: LWDLWL

Possible lineups:

Norwich: Ruddy; R Martin, Drury, Ward, Naughton; Surman, Pilkington, Fox, Bennett; Holt, Morison

Leicester: Schmeichel; Morgan, Konchesky, Mills, St. Ledger; Dyer, Drinkwater, Wellens, Gallagher, Howard; Beckford

Sports Mole says: 2-0
