Norwich City welcome Fulham to Carrow Road without injured skipper Grant Holt, who is replaced by deadline-day signing Luciano Becchio.

Norwich City captain Grant Holt will miss this afternoon's visit of Fulham with a back injury.

He is replaced in attack by Luciano Becchio, who makes his first Canaries start since joining from Leeds United on deadline day.

Another January recruit, Kei Kamara, is on the Norwich bench as Chris Hughton makes two changes to the side that drew 0-0 with Queens Park Rangers last weekend.

Elliott Bennett comes into the starting XI in place of Anthony Pilkington, while Russell Martin will skipper the hosts in the absence of Holt.

Martin Jols hand first starts to winter arrivals Emmanuel Frimpong and Stanislav Manolev as Fulham make four alterations.

Dimitar Berbatov and Steve Sidwell return after missing the defeat to Manchester United but Sascha Riether and Chris Baird are unavailable through illness.

Norwich: Bunn; R.Martin, Bassong, Turner, Garrido; Tettey, Johnson, E.Bennett, Snodgrass, Hoolahan; Becchio

Fulham: Schwarzer; Manolev, Senderos, Hangeland, Riise; Duff, Frimpong, Sidwell, Ruiz; Berbatov; Rodallega
