Our football match prediction:
Despite being regarded as favourites to win Saturday’s football match against Rotherham United, Norwich City suffered a shocking 2-1 loss to the rock-bottom team. To make things even worse for the fans important attacker Nelson Oliveira was sent off in the first half of the match, meaning that he is going to miss the Wolverhampton game through suspension. The Canaries are desperate to get back on course and considering that they are eight points behind the play-offs berth, the match against Wolves could be crucial for Alex Neill’s troops. Wolverhampton occupy 16th place in the standings ahead of the trip to Carrow Road, but they gave fans some cheer at the weekend as they recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Aston Villa. The Wolves have already recorded four wins on the road this season, but beating Norwich City at Carrow Road is easier said than done. Cameron Jerome came as a substitute and scored in the 2-1 loss to Rotherham United and we predict that he will be recalled to the starting XI.
