Match preview: Norwich v Wednesday

4 December 2020

We’re back on our travels this weekend with a Championship clash against league leaders Norwich.

The Owls head to Norfolk on the back of three successive draws under manager Tony Pulis.

After a hard-fought clash with Reading, Wednesday held on for a point in the midweek Hillsborough fixture – playing an hour with 10 men following Liam Shaw’s red card.

Pulis has demanded better decision-making in games from his side after the red card count became five for the season.

But the Owls have a solid look under the new Wednesday boss and have taken many positives from the recent resolute displays.

Norwich have lost just one game on home soil this season and will be looking for a response having gone two without a win and slipping to defeat away at Luton on Wednesday night.

Here’s all you need to know ahead of the game;
