Norwich City vs Birmingham City Match Preview
Norwich have not won since Christmas, dropping out of the automatic promotion places as a result, but are fancied to get back on track in the Championship when they host Birmingham.
Carrow Road regulars saw their team score three goals each time against Nottingham Forest and Derby in the final days of 2018 but gain only one point! Forest held the Canaries to a 3-3 draw while Derby won 4-3.
In addition, Norwich have bowed out of the FA Cup on their own pitch against Portsmouth, and away from home have drawn 1-1 at Brentford and West Brom.
They are now four points adrift of leaders Leeds and behind Sheffield United on goal difference, but Birmingham’s recent form has also tailed off somewhat and that should enable Daniel Farke’s side to return to winning ways.
The Blues are having a stronger campaign than many expected, but they have failed to taste victory in their last four matches and, just as we predicted, lost at home to Middlesbrough on Saturday.
This is an important time for Norwich in their promotion quest and with their following two matches being against the only teams above them in the table, a confidence boost from gaining three points here would be very welcome.
