TYRONE Mears makes his Bolton Wanderers debut at Carrow Road this afternoon, some seven months since making his summer switch from Burnley.

The full-back comes in for the injured Gretar Steinsson in the only change to the midweek line-up that battled to a draw against Arsenal.

Mears has played in one reserve team game and a friendly since breaking his leg in July but comes in for his first top flight outing since May 2010, when he turned out for the Clarets in a 4-2 win over Tottenham.

New signing Marvin Sordell makes the bench but there is no place for Japanese youngster Ryo Miyaichi, on loan from the Gunners.

Paul Lambert makes four changes, bringing in Adam Drury, Simeon Jackson, Anthony Pilkington and Danny Fox for Steve Morison, Russell Martin, Andrew Crofts, Bradley Johnson.

Wanderers (4-5-1): Bogdan, Mears, Wheater, Knight, Ricketts, Eagles, Reo-Coker, Muamba, M Davies, Petrov, Ngog

Subs: Jaaskelainen, Tuncay, K Davies, Klasnic, Pratley, Boyata, Sordell

Norwich (4-4-2): Ruddy, Drury, Whitbread, Holt, Jackson, Surman, Pilkington, Hoolahan, Fox, Naughton, Ayala.

Subs: Steer, Martin, Johnson, Morison, Crofts, Bennett, Wilbraham Referee: Lee Probert
