Norwich City will be aiming to equal an all time club record of consecutive home wins in a single season on Saturday when they entertain Brentford in League One at Carrow Road.

The overall club record is 12 in 1952, but that comprised the last seven home matches of one season and the first five of the next.

The record for consecutive home wins in one season was set during the 1985/6 campaign, when it helped lay the foundations for the winning of the old Division Two title.

Ken Brown's side won 10 consecutive home games between November 23 1985 and April 5 1986.

The run ended with a 0-0 draw against Sunderland at Carrow Road on April 9 - but by then the two dropped points didn't matter. City clinched promotion by winning at Bradford three days later.

This season's winning sequence began with a 4-0 thumping of Leyton Orient on September 29 and covers a period of over three months in which Paul Lambert's men have suffered only one league reverse - 2-1 at Leeds in October.
