Daniel Farke was named the second-tier manager of the month for November, and his side made it 11 wins from 14 Championship games with another comeback to kick off December – this time against Paul Warne’s Rotherham United.
While City head into the game leading the division, Bolton’s season has been hideous. A home draw with Wigan last weekend did not end the Championship’s worst current winless run, while off-field issues over the payment of player wages have only added to the issues.
Wanderers are currently above only Ipswich in the table and winless in 10 games – although their previous victory back in late September did come at home to high-flying Derby.
Saturday trips to Bristol City (5.30pm) and Blackburn (3pm) now follow for Farke’s side, before the Championship Christmas schedule arrives with a Boxing Day visit from promotion hopefuls Nottingham Forest (3pm).
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.
