Norwich City and Sunderland name the same teams for the second successive match as they prepare to meet at Carrow Road this evening.

Norwich City manager Paul Lambert and his Sunderland counterpart Steve Bruce have stuck with the players that earned victories last weekend.

As a result, Norwich captain Grant Holt starts on the bench again, with Steve Morison leading the line.

Attacking midfielder Wes Hoolahan will resume the skippering duties.

For visiting Sunderland John O'Shea starts his third game for the club since joining from Manchester United.

There is also a start in the centre of midfield for David Vaughan after the Welsh international impressed during the victory over Stoke City.

Norwich: Ruddy; R Martin, Barnett, Tierney, Naughton; Johnson, Pilkington, Hoolahan, Fox, Bennett; Morison.

Sunderland: Mignolet; O'Shea, Richardson, Bramble, Brown; Larsson, Elmohamady, Vaughan, Gardner; Sessegnon; Bendtner.
