Norwich City extended their excellent winning run to four Championship games when they thrashed Sheffield Wednesday 4-0 at Hillsborough last weekend, all four goals coming in the second half with Teemu Pukki banging-in a brace and Emi Buendia and Dennis Srbeny adding one apiece. This was the perfect response to the defeat to Premier League AFC Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup a few days beforehand and the Canaries will be highly motivated to make it five league runs on the bounce when Millwall visit Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon, the bookmakers giving away free bets on Norwich City v Millwall.
As for the visiting Lions, they hauled themselves away from the relegation zone last month but they remain just a single point above the bottom three in the Championship table having lost 2-0 at Brentford last time out. Indeed Neil Harris’ men have been a mixed bag in recent weeks with two wins and two defeats in their last four matches and this inconsistency is thwarting their plans of climbing further away from the danger zone.
The defeat to the Bees was Millwall’s sixth defeat in eight away games and while they have enjoyed more success in front of their home fans this season with wins over Ipswich Town (3-0) and Wigan Athletic (2-1) and Aston Villa (2-1) in their last three outings at the Den, it’s crystal clear that the Lions are suffering from travel-sickness and we expect Norwich City to take advantage of this. Indeed with Millwall also struggling to score on their travels with blanks drawn in all-but-two of their last six outings, we’ll also be siding with the Canaries to keep a clean sheet for their troubles with Coral Bookmakers going 11/5 on Norwich City to win-to-nil.
