MATCH PREVIEW: NORWICH CITY

11 September 2017

THE Brewers are back on the road for the second time in a matter of days as Nigel Clough takes his team to Carrow Road to face Norwich City tomorrow night.

HEAD TO HEAD
Burton and Norwich shared the spoils last season, picking up a victory each. Home territory proved to be important when these sides met during the 2016/17 campaign as Norwich beat the Brewers 3-1 in September at Carrow Road, although the Canaries were turned over at the Pirelli Stadium in the reverse fixture.

SEASON SO FAR
Daniel Farke might not have had the start he was hoping for at Norwich after joining the Championship side back in May from Borussia Dortmund II.

Norwich currently sit 17th in the table, having won two of their six games in the division so far. Their first win came on 16 August when they beat Queens Park Rangers 2-0. They were heavily beaten in their next two games having lost 4-2 to Aston Villa followed by a 4-0 beating at Millwall.

The Canaries bounced back after the international break to beat Harry Redknapp's new-look Birmingham City 1-0 at Carrow Road.

NORWICH TEAM NEWS
Ex-German youth international Tom Trybull impressed on his debut against Birmingham in Saturday's 1-0 win and is likely to start again. Harrison Reed could come back into the team alongside Trybull in defensive midfield, replacing Norwegian midfielder Alex Tettey. Alex Pritchard and Louis Thompson are both ruled out for this clash with long term injuries.

BURTON TEAM NEWS
Nigel Clough may experiment with his team after a rough afternoon at Elland Road, where the Brewers shipped five goals to a rampant Leeds United side. Luke Murphy is available again after missing the tie with parent club Leeds due to registration rules prohibiting him from playing against the Whites. Marvin Sordell may come back into the fold, with Joe Mason moving to a more advanced role.

BEN TURNER'S THOUGHTS
Turner expects the Canaries to be tough test but says that the Brewers will only be thinking of winning the game, however, the defender will not be getting carried away if Burton do take all three points from Norwich.

He said: "It doesn't matter who we have got next, we will look to bounce back. Norwich will ask different questions of us than Leeds did, because all teams are different and every game is different, but we will be looking to get a result like we do in every game."

REFEREE
Andy Davies will be the man in charge of the game tomorrow night. The Hampshire based referee has officiated five games so far this season, four of those in the Championship. Mr Davies took charge of just one Albion match last season, when the Brewers drew 0-0 with Wigan Athletic in October.
