Match Preview: Norwich City vs West Brom

Hull will travel to Carrow Road on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea, on the other hand Norwich crashed out of the FA cup after getting comprehensively beaten by relegation rivals Fulham 3-0

 

The Tiger’s have had mixed fortunes over the past week, Hull City chairman Assam Allam pumped in approximately £14 million to purchase strikers Shane Long from West Brom and Nikita Jelavic from Everton. He did though declare that he would walk if name change wasn’t completed.

 

Norwich though are having trouble on the pitch after a dreadful run of games, they have only won one of their past nine, and that victory was way back in December against West Brom.

 

David McNally, Norwich’s chief executive did state that Chris Houghton is currently safe in his position as Norwich City manager as long as they don’t descend into the dreaded relegation zone.

 

Norwich will make a string of changes to the side that lost at Fulham. Gary Hooper, Leroy Fer,

John Ruddy and Swede Martin Olsson will replace Mark Bunn, Josh Murphy, David Fox and Johan Elmander in the starting eleven. New loan signing Jonas Gutierrez may make his debut for the Canaries, but that will most probably come from the bench.

 

The Tigers will welcome new signings Nikita Jelavic and Shane Long to the squad. Jelavic has a chance of starting but Long will probably start on the bench as he is not 100% match fit.

 

Hull still remain without Sone Aluko and Robbie Brady, but they do have a chance of reovering in the next few weeks.
