MATCH PREVIEW

Canaries Bid to go Ten Clear

Norwich City seem to spend most of their times either getting promoted or relegated. The past 12 seasons have seen eight in which they were celebrating or crying. Now it's the 2020/21 season and another promotion is looking on the cards. A win over second placed Brentford will give them a ten point lead at the top of the Championship.

They won 2-0 at bottom-of-the-table Wycombe Wanderers on Sunday. That gave them a seven point lead an again Teemu Pukki was in top form. The Finnish striker opened the scoring six minutes into the second half. That's his seventh goal in the last five league games, all of which have been won. Backing him in the anytime goal scorer market is a great idea.

This run of five consecutive wins follows a poor run of form in late January/early February. Norwich City earned just two points from four league games and didn't score a single goal. All of that has changed and a return to the Premier League is looking very likely. Even more so if they can win this home game against Brentford.

On their return to the Championship, City earned just a point from their first two home league games. Since the loss to Derby on 3 October, they have gone 14 home league games without defeat. Seven of the last nine have been won. Only nine home league goals have been conceded (six in the last 14), the joint best home defensive record in the Championship. Four clean sheets have been kept in the last five at Carrow Road, that will face a severe test in this game.

Bees Back in Form

Brentford have a three point lead over third placed Watford. The Hornets don't play until after this match and should beat Wycombe at home. A win for Brentford in this game would really put the pressure on Watford. Their goal difference is better, so whatever happens on Wednesday, they will end it in second place.

Winning automatic promotion is their main target of course. They don't want to suffer the agonies of losing in the play-offs as they did last season. The Bees had gone top of the table after a long unbeaten league run. Then it all went wrong with three straight losses and just one goal scored. From being top, they now trailed Norwich.

The past couple of league games have been vital for them. They have responded well and won both of them. A 3-0 home win over Sheffield Wednesday was followed by another home win on Saturday. They went 1-0 down after just 27 seconds but fought back to win 2-1. Top scorer Ivan Toney gave them the three points with a goal 11 minutes from time. An anytime scorer on Toney is another good idea.

Away form for Brentford has seen them win eight, draw four and lose two. The last two have been lost at QPR and Coventry City, both in the bottom half of the table. Seven of the last eight on the road have seen both teams score. Norwich are back in form, Pukki is scoring consistently and that is nothing but good news for the Canaries. Go for them to win with both teams scoring.
