Norwich welcome Bristol City to Carrow Road after the break - Match Preview
Norwich look forward to welcoming Bristol City to Carrow Road on Wednesday night for what could be a very good game but with the sad news of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday both teams and their supporters will be paying their respects in their own way.
Bristol City will be making the long trip to Norwich in a highly anticipated game and they will be wanting to leave Norfolk with all 3 points. Bristol City came off the back of an important 3-2 win away at Blackburn. Bristol according to the stats from that game had a very poor game in terms of possession with them only having just 38%.
This is something that the analysts at Norwich will have made the team aware of as Norwich Strong point is their ability to keep possession of the ball. Bristol have only just got their first away win of the season so have shown themselves to be quite vulnerable when they play away from home.
Bristol City players to look out for would be their 2 top scorers Nahki Wells and Tommy Conway who are both on 4 goals and 2 of Wells goals were in the thrilling win at Blackburn and that saw Bristol go up to 4th with only 2 points separating them and Norwich in 2nd.
Norwich go into this game off the back of a very easy and routine win against an abysmal Coventry team which saw them win 3-0. It was very nice to see Teemu Pukki back on the scoresheet after a little goal drought and also in that same game saw Josh Sargent score yet another goal and show that he is bang in form and looking to push on.
Dean Smith in his press conference said that there is thankfully no further injury concerns and also provided injury updates on a number of different players firstly is Liam Gibbs who said “He has finally got his foot out the boot and is now walking on it.” This is very good news for fans as they know just how good he was before he picked up his injury.
Score prediction : Norwich City 2-1 Bristol City
