PREVIEW: Norwich City v Hull City

A trip the leaders at any stage of the season is a challenge, but when your form is stuttering - and you've lost your last four away games on the spin - heading off to Championship leaders Norwich City, is probably not the fixture you're looking for to get your play-off ambitions back on track. Particularly, as Norwich have won five on the spin - and suffered just one defeat in their last 11 matches.

However, manager Nigel Adkins is tasked with trying to resurrect Hull City's top six ambitions and to do so, he is likely to make changes from Saturday's defeat away at Nottingham Forest. While City stayed in that match until the last quarter, a slack last 15 minutes of the game punished the Tigers. Norwich have been electric in the final quarter of games this season, so being on guard is a given. Stephen Kingsley and Jon Toral are now both back in contention following injuries, while Fraizer Campbell and Evandro, are the most likely to earn recalls.

Norwich City have absolutely no fresh injuries worries to concern themselves with, as they strive to not only claim automatic promotion, but the title into the bargain. Manager Daniel Farke is almost certain to name the same starting eleven that turned over Swansea City in their last Championship outing on Friday evening.
