Norwich game previewBy: David | February 7th, 2009
The snow and cold has taken its toll on many games arounds the leagues but it appears the game with Norwich is still going ahead, Norwich’s carrow road has under soil heating so hopefully pitch should be in fine condition.
Nicky Maynard and Sproule are both back and in the squad, and according to Gary Johnson will probably play some role in todays game, but doubt either will be starting. also boom boom McCombe and Elliot are both out, while McAllister serves a ban
We’re playing Norwich at a horrible time, when they’re still low enough down the league to expect a victory, but also at a time when they’re just starting to hit some form of their own with their recent 3-3 draw with Wolves + they’re still battling to pull free of the relegation zone. could be a tougher match than the league table indicates.
what would we like to see from todays game, well a win oviously but also a constitent performance for 90 mins, some solid defence, and a comedy miss and all round terrible performance from Jamie Cureton (no worries on this one). The form table doesnt really show how many of City’s recent results have been close run things and a bit of constitency in today’s game would be a good sign that city’s form is not just a run of luck.
Prediction- in all honesty could see this being a 1-1 draw, but my official positive prediction will be 2-1 City, Maynard coming on a getting a late-ish winner.
