Ahead of the game | Locking horns with the league leaders

A preview of our trip to Norwich

9 April 2019

Can there be a tougher challenge than a midweek away trip to a team that is top of the league? The odds are stacked in Norwich City's favour, but the Royals will be up for the fight and full of belief that they can return from Norfolk with some more points on the board.

The gauntlet is clear; a team that is flying high at the summit, seven points clear of their closest rivals, and with eight straight victories in the Sky Bet Championship. A return to the Premier League looks near inevitable. Teemu Pukki, with 30 goals for club and country this season and named as Player of the Year at the EFL Awards on Sunday, is expected to lead the line again.

We have our own battle ahead though and our own motivations; we will eke out every point we can from our final half-dozen matches. Three wins from our last six games points to a decent return and we need to build on that.

So under the Carrow Road floodlights, there is the opportunity to nick a victory and give our survival hopes a boost.


Tickets for this game can be bought in advance or on arrival at Carrow Road on matchday for no extra cost. Please note that tickets will be available on a cash only basis from the South Stand on Wednesday night.
