Norwich City will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in the Championship when they return to action Birmingham City at Carrow Road.
The Canaries beat Rotherham United at the weekend, as they moved up to 11th in the second-tier standings after their opening five matches.
Whilst Birmingham tasted their first defeat of the season at the weekend, as they were beaten 1-0 by Sheffield Wednesday, who remain rooted to the bottom of the table, after a points deduction at the start of this year’s campaign.
Sky Sports’ EFL pundit David Prutton issued his thoughts ahead of the game between the two sides, and felt as though Norwich will pick up a 2-1 win, as they look to build on a narrow victory over the Millers last weekend.
“What about that dramatic win for Norwich against Rotherham, then?! Jordan Hugill’s last-gasp penalty earned them a welcome victory after a muted start and I feel it may give them the springboard they need to be able to kick on from here.
“Birmingham have perhaps not started Aitor Karanka’s reign with a bang either, but three points would be all the more valuable for them as they’ve won just one league game since February. I don’t think the next will come at Carrow Road, though.”

I think Norwich will sneak a win in this one.
The Canaries only really came to life once Rotherham United went a man down at the weekend, and they’ll know that they need perform much better against Birmingham.
The Blues suffered defeat against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, and Aitor Karanka will be eager to see a response from his side in this match.
But I have to agree with Prutton here in saying that Norwich will edge out the Blues here.
