Norwich City v Stoke City – Match Preview

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton

Norwich will be looking to continue their encouraging run of form when they welcome Stoke to Carrow Road on Saturday.

The Canaries go into the game on the back of a dramatic Capital One Cup victory over Tottenham in midweek, and completed a run of three games without defeat.

The run began with a 1-0 win over Arsenal in their last home game, whilst a 1-1 draw against former manager Paul Lambert at Villa Park was another step in the right direction.

Stoke City have been the draw specialists so far, and need a win in order to kick start their season. Last weekend saw them draw 0-0 with Sunderland in a game that was far from memorable.

Norwich defender Russell Martin is making a good recovery from his back injury and could be fit after missing the midweek win against Tottenham.

Andy Wilkinson is set to fill in at left back for Stoke, following the news Marc Wilson is set to miss three months with a fractured fibula picked up in the draw with Sunderland.

Prediction: Norwich City 1-0 Stoke City
