Norwich City will host Watford - Sky Bet Championship

The hosts have struggled for form in recent weeks, rapidly falling behind in the race for promotion, prompting the dismissal of manager Dean Smith. Norwich played out a 1-1 draw against Reading in their last game. They looked set to come away with all three points before their opponents scored a late leveller.

Watford, meanwhile, have had mixed results this season but remain in the race for the playoffs. They lost 4-0 against struggling Swansea City in their last game and could have no complaints after failing to create enough noteworthy chances to alter the result.

The visitors have picked up 37 points from 25 games this season and are fifth in the standings.
