Close to 3,000 Canaries fans will be at Selhurst Park on Saturday, April 9, after the away allocation was confirmed as sold-out.

The Eagles are five points ahead of Norwich, with a game in hand, in 16th place in the table and are yet to win a league game in 2016.

Alan Pardew's team were fifth in the top-flight standings on New Year's Day but have not tasted victory in the league since a 2-1 success at Stoke City on December 19.

They south London side have drawn four and lost nine of their last league 13 matches and could still be pulled into the relegation dogfight – with an FA Cup semi-final against Watford at Wembley on April 24 to also be dealt with.

City's biggest away following so far this season was 2,976 at Aston Villa in February, a match which Alex Neil's team disappointingly lost 2-0.

There were also 2,934 Canaries fans at Stamford Bridge for the 1-0 loss to Chelsea in November and 2,636 at Upton Park for the 2-2 draw with West Ham in September.
