Norwich City’s longest away trip of the Championship season, at Cardiff City, has been moved to a Friday night kick-off.

The match was originally due to be played on Saturday, December 2 but would have clashed with a rugby union fixture at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, with Wales due to face South Africa.

That has caused the match at the Cardiff City Stadium to be brought forward to a 7.45pm kick-off on Friday December 1.

The 550-mile round trip is the longest of any facing Canaries supporters in the coming campaign, ahead of the 506-mile journey to Sunderland.
