Norwich City will host West Bromwich Albion - Sky Bet Championship

Norwich City will host West Bromwich Albion at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon in the Championship.

The Canaries are enjoying a solid run of form at the moment, gaining momentum in their pursuit of promotion to the top flight. They beat Bristol City 3-2 at home last time out, with Teemu Pukki scoring a first-half brace before Josh Sargent got in on the act after the restart to put the game beyond the Robins. Norwich are second in the league table with 19 points from nine games.

West Brom, meanwhile, have been largely uninspiring this season. They were beaten 3-2 by Birmingham City in their last game, which was their second consecutive winless outing at the Hawthorns.

The Baggies are languishing in 20th place in the league standings with just nine points from as many games. They are level on points with Swansea in the first relegation spot.
