Daniel Farke’s side picked up a superb 3-1 win over play-off chasing Birmingham last weekend; their first victory in six games but equally a third Championship game unbeaten.

The win moved City back into second spot in the second tier, just a point behind leaders Leeds United.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United last 1-0 at Swansea – enough to see them lose third place to West Bromwich Albion.

However, that defeat ended a run of four successive wins while the Blades won at Carrow Road last season as well as in injury time at Bramall Lane back in August – Norwich’s last league away defeat.

In the midst of a tough run, Farke’s Canaries follow the weekend with a mouth-watering trip to Leeds on Saturday (5.30pm) to kick off February.

Then comes another crucial clash, with Paul Lambert’s Ipswich Town the visitors to a sold-out Carrow Road the following Sunday (12pm).

Each and every Norwich City first-team game, our reporters will be on the scene. If you see them – especially with their cameras – say hello.
