Gary Hooper returns to the Norwich City team for Saturday's meeting with West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League.

Gary Hooper has returned to the Norwich City side for Saturday's clash with West Bromwich Albion at Carrow Road in the Premier League.

The former Celtics forward started on the bench in last week's 3-0 defeat to Swansea City, but manager Chris Hughton has decided to leave out Ricky van Wolfswinkel in favour of the Englishman.

In the only other change for Norwich, Ryan Bennett has dropped to the bench to be replaced by Joseph Yobo, who partners Sebastian Bassong in defence.

Manager Pepe Mel makes just one change to his West Brom side as Jonas Olsson returns to the starting lineup, with Craig Dawson being forced out of the team by the Swede.

Norwich: Ruddy, Martin, Yobo, Bassong, Olsson, Snodgrass, Howson, Tettey, Hoolahan, Elmander, Hooper

West Brom: Foster, Reid, McAuley, Olsson, Ridgewell, Amalfitano, Morrison, Mulumbu, Dorrans, Sessegnon, Vydra
