Bristol City predicted XI v Norwich City: Robins set for triple change in Championship clash

Bristol City travel to Carrow Road on Saturday

Bristol City will look to continue their five-match unbeaten run when they take on Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon.

The Robins netted a last-minute penalty to clinch a draw against Huddersfield Town last time out, which added to victories against Blackburn Rovers, Leicester City and Plymouth Argyle.

Liam Manning’s side held Sunderland to a goalless draw between those wins, as City boast an impressive defensive record of five clean sheets in their last seven matches.

With the Robins in 12th place in the Championship table, 13 points adrift from the top six but 14 points clear from the relegation zone, their three remaining matches will be used to continue their upward trajectory going into the summer.

Following their visit to the Canaries, Manning’s side will face Rotherham United and Stoke City to round off their campaign.

Norwich will prove tough opponents against the Robins, having won two of their last three matches, including triumphing against current table toppers Ipswich Town.

Last weekend’s return of Jonathan Rowe will provide an additional threat for the hosts, while Manning is boosted by the availability of Rob Dickie following three matches out injured.

In the initial fixture this season, a 95th-minute strike from Adam Idah snatched the three points for the Canaries after Jason Knight’s opener and an own goal from George Tanner.
