Norwich City have begun their second successive season of Championship football in rather modest fashion, tallying four points from their first three games.
New boss Daniel Farke will have expected a better return but will hope his side can kick on having picked up their first win of the season against QPR in the week.
Norwich travel to Aston Villa tomorrow in what will be a difficult tie against a Villain’s side aiming to pick up their own first win of the new campaign.
The Canaries go into the game on the back of a new signing, with the announcement that Lincoln City defender Sean Raggett has joined the club, but will be loaned back to the Imps until January.
The colossal, 6 ft 5 in defender enjoyed a wonderful campaign last season as the Lincolnshire based club stormed to the National League title as well as the FA Cup quarterfinals, with Raggett netting a last minute winner at Premier League Burnley in the 5th round.
The 23-year-old was playing way below his depth in non-league football, and Lincoln have done well to hold onto him for another few months, as they acclimatize to the demands of the Football League.
Raggett will link up with the Canaries properly in the second half of the season, and is fully expected to play an important role in any promotion run the club may launch.
Similar in stature and size to Bristol City’s Aden Flint, Raggett will dominate in the division in the air, and his positioning is admirable for a player to have only just begun life in the Football League.
Dangerous in the box from set pieces as well, Raggett will be a wonderful addition to Daniel Farke’s squad when he moves to East Anglia in January and has the potential to be a top flight regular in the future.
How much potential do you think Raggett has, Norwich fans?
