Declan Rudd will play in goal for Norwich in Saturday's FA Cup fourth-round visit of Luton as Chris Hughton plans to rotate his squad.
The young custodian has slipped further down the Carrow Road pecking order after Hughton snapped up Northern Ireland international Lee Camp on a free transfer from Nottingham Forest.
However, with Camp cup-tied, Mark Bunn set for a rest and first-choice John Ruddy still ruled out because of a long-term thigh injury, the Canaries boss has confirmed that Rudd will get a chance to shine against the Blue Square Bet Premier Division side at Carrow Road before possibly being loaned out for the rest of the season.
Hughton has also confirmed that midfielder Andrew Surman will definitely feature against the Hatters, with playmaker David Fox and winger Elliott Bennett looking to feature.
Centre-half Sebastien Bassong is fit following a calf injury and could feature unless Hughton decides to leave him for the Premier League clash with Tottenham next week, while full-back Steven Whittaker has resumed full training this week following a hip problem but the game will come too soon.
Striker Steve Morison is also out of contention because of a thigh problem.
On his team plans, Hughton confirmed: "I shall be making changes. Andrew Surman will play, Declan will play in goal and what we will have, obviously, is decisions to make on the starting 11, but it will be a strong squad.
"Whatever changes I make, if I look at the 18 involved they will be all ones who have been involved in first team. Generally we have a squad that is fit, apart from Whittaker, who is just coming back, and John Ruddy."
