Our prediction for this Championship match:
After dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers, Norwich City will look to move closer to the playoffs berth when they take on Swansea City on Saturday afternoon. The Canaries failed to win the previous three league fixtures and this has to go down as a must-win game for David Wagner’s troops. Dimitrios Giannoulis limped off with injury in the midweek draw, with Sam McCallum likely to step up. Adam Idah is pushing for a start as well after scoring as a substitute against QPR.
The South Wales outfit, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, but seeing that they have slim playoffs chances, we are tempted to put our money on Norwich City. A man to watch in the away team will be Dutch forward Joel Piroe, who impressed in a 4-2 win over Preston, while Joe Allen is banned for the match.
