Huckerby May Return

Huckerby May Return

Norwich striker Darren Huckerby could be in line for a surprise return ahead of schedule for Sunday's Sky game against the Clarets.

The rapid striker has been out for three weeks after tearing a muscle in his groin, and was intially expected to be out for a month. However, Canaries boss Nigel Worthington will only play him if he is 100% ready.

'He's got to be fully-fit,' he said. 'You don't want him to aggravate it and be out for another month or six weeks' Worthington said

'He will have to be 100 per cent fit and be 100 per cent fit in his own mind.'

Huckerby has been a constant threat to the Clarets in our games against Norwich, and will likely be a significant boost to Norwich if he wins his fitness race.

Why do I suspect a bit of kidology here, with Huckerby 100% certain to play! Dont like the vibes for this match all round, on the telly it will all be about Worthy not wanting to go and Cotterill not wanting to stay! Bet we gift them 3 easy points!

Rest assured, with Worthington facing the axe, Huckerby will definitely feature, even if only as a late substitute. There is a possibility that the home crowd will help Burnley if Norwich resort to hoofing the ball (as we did so often last seaon) and freely distributed red cards get waved and undermine the concentration of City players. As hard as it might seem to believe, many City fans hope that you Clarets take it, so the last but one nail goes into Worthington's coffin. Editor, Vital Norwich

nows the time to be going to Norwich, if they don't score early the fans will be on their backs.

On the other hand, we seem to have got in the habit of scoring early in recent games, if we do so again that would put tremendous pressure on the manager and team. It would also probably trigger an even more hostile reception from the home crowd already baying for Worthy's blood!

Unless we get beat by four clear goals today we wont at least drop below 11th, but surely the possibility of being third if we win should spur us on to be positive and not try and play for a draw! Get in there! Two weeks relaxing in third place till our next game would be pretty comfortable! Just hope all this Baggies stuff doesnt have any psychological effect, never as SC had such an opportunity to prove his worth. If he is thinking of leaving, taking his current team third would look pretty impressive!
