David Prutton shares Birmingham City v Norwich City prediction ahead of Championship clash



Norwich City are facing another big evening as they travel to take on Birmingham City.

After suffering a minor blip at the end of January the Canaries have got themselves back on track with three wins in their last three matches.

The latest win was a 1-0 victory over Rotherham United at the weekend – a result that saw them extend their lead at the top of the Championship to seven points.

But Birmingham City will be hoping to cause an upset.

Despite a poor run of recent form confidence will be high in Aitor Karanka’s squad following their 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend – a result that has pulled them out of the relegation zone.

Facing Norwich is a different proposition entirely though, and EFL pundit David Prutton has predicted a 3-0 win for Daniel Farke’s side.

Writing for Sky Sports, Prutton said: “Sneaking past Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday may have eased just a smidgen of pressure on under-fire Birmingham boss Aitor Karanka, but his side are in a perilous position just above the bottom three, particularly given Rotherham and Sheffield Wednesday have games in hand.

“Most teams have encountered a blip this season and Norwich seem to be well and truly over theirs now.

“The 1-0 win over Rotherham made it three straight wins for them, with just one goal conceded along the way. This should be a relatively simple away win.”

The verdict

It’s hard to look past Norwich City for this one.

The Canaries are looking like the real deal so far this term, and despite a recent blip, they now look like they’re firmly back on track.

Birmingham City are enduring a tough season and it’s hard to see them getting a result.
