Robert Snodgrass believes goalkeeper Mark Bunn will shine for Norwich during John Ruddy's injury absence.
Ruddy starred for the Canaries in their rise to the top flight and has become a regular in Roy Hodgson's England squad.
However, the 26-year-old now faces three months on the sidelines with a thigh injury that will see him undergo surgery this weekend. His absence will see summer signing Bunn get an extended run in the first team, with the former Blackburn goalkeeper helping Norwich to a 1-1 draw at Southampton on Wednesday.
Snodgrass, who scored the Canaries' equaliser, believes Bunn is a more than capable replacement for Ruddy.
"We'll miss John," the midfielder said. "What he brings to the team is clean sheets. But we've got a great keeper in Mark Bunn, who is terrific. I think you saw that in the Tottenham Hotspur game and against Southampton.
"He was calm, composed and pulled off some good saves, but I would like to wish John a speedy recovery because he is a great chap and great keeper. His return will only bolster the team."
