Norwich rounded off their tough recent run with an excellent 3-0 win over Paul Lambert’s fiery Ipswich Town at Carrow Road.

Following on from victory at Marcelo Bielsa’s promotion rivals Leeds, Daniel Farke’s Canaries are now unbeaten in six Championship games, have lost just twice in 27 and sit two points clear at the summit ahead of kick-off.

Meanwhile, Preston are also in good form: unbeaten in five games and earned a 2-1 win at struggling Bolton last time out.

After that, it is Lee Johnson’s Bristol City who will visit Carrow Road the following Saturday in the midst of a seven-game winning run and 13 unbeaten, stretching back to the end of November – including when the two sides drew at Ashton Gate in December.

The Robins host Premier League Wolves in the FA Cup fifth round on Sunday.
