English Barclays Premiership

Helder Postiga and Bobby Zamora will both be included in the squad for tonight's pre-season friendly against Norwich City.

First team coach Chris Hughton confirmed that the new boys - two goals each already in pre-season - will be part of a strong squad at Carrow Road.

Chris said: "There are a couple of players who we will leave out just as a precaution but certainly the new signings will both be involved.

"It is very much a first team match. We're taking 20 players and there will be first team players on the bench - that underlines the strength of the squad we're taking down.

"Pre-season has gone very well in terms of results and performances but this will be our hardest game yet and that's the way we've planned it. We expect a very difficult game."

The friendly will give Chris a close-up view of Paul McVeigh, a striker he coached at reserve level at Spurs before his move to the Canaries in March 2000.

McVeigh joined us as a trainee in 1996 and managed three first team outings, scoring his only goal against Coventry.

Still only 25, the Northern Ireland international has certainly found his feet in Norfolk and bagged 15 goals last season.

"Paul's done terrific over the last couple of years," added Chris. "He took a while to get into his stride there, wasn't so successful in his first couple of seasons but at the end of that period his performances started to improve.

"He got himself into the first team and for the last couple of seasons he's done really well."
