Match preview: Norwich v Wednesday

18 April 2019

Sheffield Wednesday head to Norwich for the Good Friday fixture at Carrow Road.

The 7.45pm kick-off will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

Norwich are unbeaten in ten – a run which includes eight straights wins before back to back draws with Reading and Wigan last week.

The Canaries head into the Championship clash top of the table, four points clear of second and seven clear of third, though that could change before kick-off with this being the late fixture.

Wednesday, who last picked up three points at Carrow Road in 2008/09, have lost two of their previous 14 games.

The reverse fixture at Hillsborough earlier this season finished 4-0 to Norwich.

Here is’s match preview:
