Norwich City bid to follow up their Brentford win at Barnsley this weekend. Picture by Paul Chesterton/Focus Images

Alex Neil is targeting a Championship win against his old club Barnsley to prove Norwich City is firmly back on track.

It's not been the ideal start to life as Manchester United head coach for Jose Mourinho, right.

It’s hardly a revelation when a former player backs his old club in some form or another – but it does usually make for a good debating point, especially when it comes to football managers.

Alex Neil’s old Barnsley pals admit they never saw him as management material ahead of the Norwich City chief’s first Oakwell reunion.

Paul Gibbs describes himself as ‘a jovial type of guy’ so it was a case of chalk and cheese when he walked into the Barnsley dressing room in 2002 and met Alex Neil, who he jokingly referred to as a miserable old git. The pair eventually hit it off – and Norfolk-born Gibbs is a big admirer of the City manager’s ethics.

It has been a while coming, but I think you’ll all agree with me that Norwich City’s first win since October 15 was certainly worth the wait with that comprehensive 5-0 demolition of Brentford.

Surprises have been in pretty short supply in recent weeks at Norwich City – and when they have popped up, they’ve tended to be more towards the negative end of the spectrum.

Nathan Redmond has shown the form of his career so far with Southampton, following his summer switch from Carrow Road.

It’s barely six years since Norwich City versus Southampton was a League One fixture. Through canny Carrow Road appointments and recruitment, plus a hefty points deduction for administration down at St Mary’s, only the first of those two clubs made an immediate return to the second tier.
