Head-to-Head

 
Norwich have a narrow historical edge over Birmingham, winning 25 and drawing 24 times in 70 games between the sides. Birmingham have won 21 times.

Norwich are unbeaten in the last 6 meetings of these sides, and have lost just one of the last 13 encounters.

The last match between the two side was won 1-0 by Norwich. A late Mario Vrancic goal was enough to defeat 10-men Birmingham at Carrow Road. 

Birmingham Form


Championship strugglers Birmingham sit in 21st place after a run of just two victories in their last 15 games.

A 1-0 victory away against fellow strugglers Sheffield Wednesday last time out ended a run of six games without a win and a run of three straight losses. 

Scott Hogan’s goal was enough to get the win against 10-men Wednesday and lift the side out of the bottom three.

The poor run of form that preceded the victory included one clean sheet and only 3 goals scored across the last six games.

Goalscoring hero Hogan is the only player in the Birmingham side to score more than three goals this season. His personal tally is six for the campaign.

Birmingham Injuries and Team News


Aitor Karanka has no fresh injury concerns and should have a full squad to choose from.

Last time out, Jeremie Bela and Ivan Sanchez were brought in to support Scott Hogan in the attack and this may continue. 

Norwich Form


Norwich have recorded three straight victories with striker Teemu Pukki scoring in all three games. They remain top of the league by seven points.

A 1-0 victory at home to Rotherham at the weekend saw Pukki make it four goals in his last three matches. Pukki now has 15 goals this season.

He scored twice in a 4-1 win over Stoke City and scored alongside Emi Buendia in a 2-0 victory against Coventry City. 

Norwich Injuries and Team News


Norwich should still be without Marco Stiepermann, Jordan Hugill and Sam Byram, while Michael McGovern is out with a long-term injury. 

Defender Ben Gibson should have recovered from back injury and may regain a place in the squad.
