The Canaries have announced the first details of their pre-season schedule – a friendly away to Milton Keynes Dons.

MK Dons have just missed out on promotion to the Championship. They reached the League One play-offs for the second season in a row, but lost to eventual winners Huddersfield in the semi-finals. Last August, in their last meeting with Norwich, the Dons won 4-0 in the Carling Cup second round at Carrow Road, helped by two goals from ex-Canary Luke Chadwick.

Ticket details for City fans for the friendly have yet to be announced.

The rest of the Canaries' pre-season programme has yet to be confirmed, but they have revealed that there will be two home games against top European sides.
