It seems like an age since the play-off places were out of our own control. Unfortunately that is the case and with the form of Fulham and Sheffield Wednesday it seems inevitable that both will get the results they need at home to Brentford and away at Ipswich. We need to play our part and beat Norwich, a game that looks extremely difficult given our current form.
Captain Liam Bridcutt will miss the game through the same problem that has been causing an issue for a while now, in my opinion effecting his form for the entire season. Apart from that it’s as you were but there will have to be changes after a couple of awful results. The attacking players have been poor, starving Chris Wood of service and they need to up their game for the last couple of fixtures. The Norwich game isn’t just a chance for three points it’s a chance for the players to play in front of another full house and those fans to show their appreciation for the season that may not end how we wanted but has been a brilliant ride.
Norwich may or may not turn up for the game tomorrow. A win would take us well clear of them in the league, our closest challengers for our current spot. Players such as Alex Pritchard and Wes Hoolahan have been up and down like the rest of the team this season. Some huge wins have been coupled with huge defeats and Alex Neil paid the price for a poor season which seemed to crumble as the games came and went. After a good start and what seemed a nailed on automatic place the results got worse and worse. They are a huge threat on their day and they could easily cause an upset tomorrow.
One To Watch – Jonny Howson – A bit of a hero in these parts after being the captain of the club in our last promotion. Can control a game if given time and space.
