Canaries looking to get promotion push back on track
Canaries looking to get promotion push back on track

Norwich will be looking to return to the top six of the Championship standings with a win over fellow promotion hopefuls Huddersfield.

The Canaries will head into Friday's match at Carrow Road having won just two of their last nine league matches, although both those victories have come in their last two home fixtures, a 5-0 triumph against Brentford on December 3 and a 1-0 success over Aston Villa on Tuesday.

Carrow Road has been something of a fortress for Alex Neil's men this season as they have lost just twice at the venue in 11 matches in all competitions, with eight of those games ending in victory.

Norwich have also enjoyed recent home success against Huddersfield, securing a 5-0 victory when the two sides last met at Carrow Road, although out of all the goalscorers on that day, only Cameron Jerome remains at the club, and he is a doubt for Friday's contest due to a back problem.

In total the Canaries are unbeaten in their last ten home encounters with Huddersfield, with their last defeat in the fixture coming way back in November 1969, so a home win at n/a appears to be a shrewd bet.

Matt Jarvis is the only member of the Norwich squad who will definitely miss the match as the former England international continues to struggle with a knee injury.

Huddersfield began the season like a steam train, winning five and drawing one of their opening six league games, but they have since struggled to rediscover that consistency, slipping well behind the automatic promotion positions.

The Terriers are still very much in the hunt for promotion however, and back-to-back league wins against Bristol City at home and Burton Albion away have propelled them back into the play-off positions.

David Wagner's side are available at n/a to secure a victory at Carrow Road, but they have not recorded consecutive away successes in the division since February 2015, so a draw at n/a may be a more likely result for the West Yorkshire outfit.

Huddersfield will still be without captain Mark Hudson and winger Sean Scannell for Friday's match due to respective injury problems, and the duo's absence will come as a blow to Wagner as both players have featured regularly this season.

The Terriers will move into third in the standings if they secure a victory on Friday night, but they could end the weekend outside the play-off positions if they lose and other results go against them.

Recommended bet: Home win with a -1 handicap at n/a
