Many pundits believed that Norwich City would do rather well in this season's Championship campaign, however as yet we have seen little indication that they have what it takes to mount a serious challenge on the play-off places. Indeed, Alex Neil's men have been as mixed a bag as one could possibly get with some pretty impressive performances as well as some hugely disappointing ones. The fans would certainly have been on a high following their East Anglia derby win over rivals Ipswich Town last month, however their subsequent hopes and expectations won't have included defeat in all-but-one of their following six competitive outings with just a single Championship point collected. This is dreadful form by anyone's standards and should they continue in a similar vein for the remainder of the season, one would certainly expect them to be amongst the relegation battlers at the business end of the campaign.

Their weekend visitors Preston North End have also been a mixed bag although they do head into this match on something of a high following an excellent 2-1 win at high-flying Bristol City, this result denting the Robins' automatic promotion hopes. Whether the Lilywhites can make it two on the bounce remains to be seen but they will certainly be optimistic of their chances. Indeed boss Alex Neil would dearly love to get one over on a club which sacked him earlier this year and in all honesty we believe that the visitors can get themselves something from this encounter.

As we've already said, the Canaries have been a mixed bag this season but they have been consistent on home turf. Unfortunately for them this consistency has seen them fail to win in front of their home fans with no victories in their last six matches at Carrow Road. This leads us to believe that we won't be seeing a Norwich City win on Saturday afternoon and as such, we'll be siding with the visitors to make it two wins on the bounce by returning home from East Anglia with some more points in the bag.
