Joe Kinnear may gamble on Oyvind Leonhardsen to supply the missing spark for Wimbledon. The Norwegian midfielder, on loan from Rosenborg, could make his debut in the clash. He trained with Wimbledon on Friday and assistant manager Terry Burton said: 'We still have to sort out his international clearance, but there is a chance that he will play for us on Sunday.
Wimbledon are missing goals from the departed John Fashanu and injured Robbie Earle. In the past three games, they have lacked striker Dean Holdsworth too, who has back and hamstring problems.
Norwich manager John Deehan has Darren Eadie, Jon Newsome and Mark Robins missing for a fixture the East Anglians have lost heavily - 1-3, 0-3 and 1-3 -for the last three seasons. Winger Eadie has an achilles strain while skipper Newsome has a back injury. Robins has a stomach upset, but should to be fit. Robert Ullathorne stands by for Eadie while Spencer Prior will again deputise for Newsome.Reuse content
