Sky Sports pundit issues Norwich City vs AFC Bournemouth prediction as Canaries seek promotion



Norwich City will be looking to win promotion back to the Premier League tomorrow as they prepare to host AFC Bournemouth at Carrow Road.

The Canaries are on course to make an immediate return to the top-flight after being relegated last season, and a win tomorrow would see them secure automatic promotion.

Daniel Farke’s side have enjoyed a quite remarkable season having lost only five league games this season, yielding 90 points from a possible 123.

Tomorrow, they take on a Bournemouth side looking to cement their place in the play-offs after recently leapfrogging Reading into sixth place.

1. Norwich have always played in yellow

The Cherries come into this one looking to make it six wins on the bounce, after beating Huddersfield Town 2-1 in midweek.

It promises to be an entertaining clash between two sides who are both seeking immediate returns to the Premier League, so what does David Prutton think?

The Sky Sports pundit has predicted a 3-2 home win for the Canaries, saying: “Norwich could well be promoted by the time this game kicks off, but as they are going up sooner or later anyway it shouldn’t have too much of a bearing on their performance on Saturday evening.

“Bournemouth will have had a keen on eye on what happens at Reading on Friday night, but it is their play-off spot to lose now after a brilliant run. This should be a fantastic game, but I think a free-wheeling Norwich side could edge it and guarantee the party on Saturday night.”

The Verdict

This will be a really good game.

If you take the prize of promotion out of it, it’s a tough test between two promotion rivals who both possess plenty of attacking quality.

I just think Norwich have too much quality for Bournemouth to be honest, and if anyone could put an end to their winning run, it’s them.

Norwich deserve to win promotion and I think they will produce a performance which makes everyone believe they deserve that tomorrow.
