Match preview

Norwich City’s efforts to secure a swift return to the Premier League will resume on Saturday, October 8th, at Carrow Road.

Next up for the high-flying Canaries? A meeting with mid-table Preston North End.

Dean Smith’s troops are currently in the midst of a stellar stretch of form, which has seen them put an altogether shaky opening to the campaign firmly behind them, courtesy of a 10-game unbeaten run across all competitions.

Such endeavours have seen Norwich climb to 2nd in the Championship table, lagging behind Sheffield United only as a result of an inferior goal difference.

Their most recent outing, in midweek, saw Smith and co. afforded the opportunity to leapfrog the table-topping Blades, in a trip to fellow promotion hopefuls Reading.

When all was said and done, though, the Canaries were forced to make do with a share of the spoils at the Madejski Stadium, after seeing Grant Hanley’s go-ahead effort early in the 2nd-half swiftly cancelled out by Jeff Hendrick.

Turning attentions towards the upcoming visitors to Carrow Road, Preston’s midweek endeavours proved to be of an altogether more fruitful nature.

A meeting with West Bromwich Albion at Deepdale ultimately culminated in the Lilywhites piling the pressure on the relegation-battling Baggies, courtesy of a 1-0 triumph.

Ryan Lowe’s men, in turn, have climbed to a comfortable 11th in England’s 2nd-tier, six points clear of the drop zone.

It is also perhaps worth noting that Preston have looked more impressive when on the road than at home this season, ahead of a daunting trip to Carrow Road.

And yet, we at 101 nevertheless envision Norwich simply having too much for the Lilywhites on Saturday afternoon, with a return to winning ways likely on the cards for the day’s hosts.
