Our prediction for this Championship match:
Wycombe Wanderers and Norwich City, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the season finale, take on each other at Adams Park on Monday evening. The Chairboys did well to beat Reading thanks to Fred Onyedinma’s goal, but their Championship status remains in great danger. The rock-bottom side face an uphill task in Monday’s clash, and given Norwich City’s form in February, home win should not be considered.
Tafazolli is banned for the hosts, while Akinfenwa, Jacobson, and Pattison are all likely to miss the game through injuries. The Canaries, on the other hand, are on a four-game winning run in the Championship, and seeing that Finland international Pukki has been scoring goals for fun of late, we are tempted to put our money on the league leaders. All Byram, Gibson, McGovern, Nyland, and Stiepermann are all likely to miss the game with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Jason McCarthy):
Jason McCarthy is a product of the famous Southampton youth academy. McCarthy started his youth career in his hometown club back in 2002 and he made his senior debut with the Saints in the Premier League on December 26, 2014, coming as a substitute for Nathaniel Clyne in a 3-1 away victory at Crystal Palace.
After spending a couple of seasons on loan at Wycombe Wanderers and Walsall, the English defender signed a three-year deal with Barnsley in the summer of 2017 for an undisclosed fee. Jason McCarthy was struggling to secure a first-team football at the Oakwell stadium outfit and, as a result, he returned to Wycombe Wanderers on August 9, 2018, penning a three-year contract with the League One side.
His preferred foot is right, his main position centre-back, but he is used as a right-back as well. Jason McCarthy was born in Southampton on November 7, 1995.
Highlighted Team (Norwich):
After spending only one season in the Premier League, Norwich City dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. Norwich City are located in Norwich, Norfolk and they welcome their rivals at Carrow Road.
The stadium was built and opened in 1935 and the capacity of the venues is 27,137 (all-seater). However the stadium’s record attendance is 43,984. The Canaries have won two League Cup trophies (1973, 1975) and their main rivals are Ipswich Town. The two teams have been facing each other in the East Anglian Derby since 1902.
The colour of Norwich City’s home kit is yellow and green and that is the main reason why they are known as the Canaries. The likes of Kevin Keeland, Ian Culverhouse, Steve Bruce, Duncan Forbes, Mark Bowen, Darren Huckerby, Ian Crook, Martin Peters, Darren Eadier, Chris Sutton and Iwan Roberts are notable footballers who played for the Carrow Road outfit in the past.
