Team News

  • Michael Turner returned to the bench for the Capital One Cup quarter final in midweek and is in contention once again, and with Ryan Bennett a doubt after missing the win at Swansea with a knock, Turner and Russell Martin will vie for the centre-back slot alongside Seb Bassong.
  • Alexander Tettey missed the Swansea game but is expected to be available to face Wigan here. He would replace Jonny Howson in central midfield.
  • Robert Snodgrass was in fine fettle at the Liberty Stadium and will look to continue where he left off here.
  • Wigan have Maynor Figueroa back from suspension and he will go straight back into a Wigan line-up that was deprived of as many as 4 first choice central defenders last week, though Caldwell has picked up an injury and will miss out.
  • Ivan Ramis is nearing a return from a hamstring injury that has seen him miss several weeks, but this game is likely to come too soon for him.
  • Boyce could remain in the back three with Ronnie Stam continuing at right-midfield.

Prediction

  • Norwich are on a fantastic run, having lost none of their last 9 Premier League matches; 3 more than any other team in the division. They are 12th in the table but are only 4 points off Everton in 4th, and they will be looking up rather than over their shoulders given their recent form.
  • Wigan dropped back into the bottom 3 after only 1 win in their last 6 coupled with Sunderland's win against Reading in midweek. Roberto Martinez has had to deal with a whole host of first team absentees recently, but whether his reinforced backline can deal with Norwich's improving attack is a big ask.
  • Three of the last four meetings between the sides have ended in 1-1 a scoreline, with Norwich winning the other game 2-0. Given the Canaries recent run, which has seen them win their last 4 home games, they will be favourites to win this one.
