As Norwich City’s winless run in the EFL Championship continues, Michael Bailey dishes out his video verdict and ratings following the Canaries’ 1-1 draw with Alex Neil’s Preston North End at Carrow Road.
City were held by PNE despite James Maddison’s latest stunning free-kick giving the Canaries a half-time lead.
In the end a poacher’s finish from Tom Barkhuizen brought the visitors level in the second half, and ensured Neil’s side left his former club with the minimum they deserved.
City are now without a win in the Championship since claiming their latest East Anglian derby success towards the end of October.
Daniel Farke’s side headed into the game on a run of five league games without a win, behind held to a 1-1 draw at home to Barnsley last weekend before suffering a 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest in midweek.
Neil’s PNE had endured a difficult winless run of their own stretching back to September, before earning a superb 2-1 victory at high-flying Bristol City in midweek.
With a busy week concluded, City’s next fixture is a tricky one as December is ushered in with a trip to birthday boy Neil Warnock and his promotion contenders Cardiff on Friday night (7.45pm).
