Team News: Kyle Lafferty preferred to Lewis Grabban for Norwich City

Northern Ireland star Kyle Lafferty is preferred to Lewis Grabban as Cameron Jerome's strike partner for Norwich City's Championship match with Bolton Wanderers.

Kyle Lafferty has been given the nod up front for Norwich City's Championship match with Bolton Wanderers tonight.

Canaries boss Neil Adams prefers the Northern Ireland international to Lewis Grabban as Cameron Jerome's partner.

Lafferty's return is one of three changes made by Adams from the 0-0 draw with Sheffield Wednesday as Norwich go in search of a first win in six matches.

Nathan Redmond and Gary O'Neil come in for Bradley Johnson and Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe, who is expected to face a long layoff after suffering knee ligament damage.

Bolton have won two out of three games since the appointment of Neil Lennon, and the former Celtic boss makes just two changes for the trip to Carrow Road.

Youngster Oscar Threlkeld replaces Kevin McNaughton at right-back, while Joe Mason is dropped for Mark Davies as Lennon reverts to a 4-5-1 formation.

Norwich: Ruddy; Whittaker, Martin, Turner, Olsson; O'Neil, Tettey; Redmond, Howson, Lafferty; Jerome
Subs: Rudd, Cuellar, Johnson, Grabban, Hooper, Miquel, Josh Murphy

Bolton: Lonergan; Threlkeld, Mills, Dervite, Ream; Spearing, M Davies, Danns, Pratley, Chung-Yong; Beckford
Subs: Kenny, Mason, Clayton, Trotter, Vela, C Davies, Moxey
