Norwich City vs Fulham
England – Championship
Date: Friday, 30 March 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).
Fulham have disappointingly ended the four-win streak by dropping out a massive two-goal cushion to share spoils with the bottom-half QPR side at their Craven Cottage before the international break. Can Slavisa Jokanovic’s men bounce back and return on the winning ways when they travel to Carrow Road to play Norwich City on Friday afternoon?
It shouldn’t be too big of a task for the visitors given Norwich’s struggles for consistency throughout the season. Nonetheless, the Canaries will head into this with an improved confidence after beating Reading 3-2 at home last time out. As Fulham showed lack of meticulousness at the back in a 2-2 draw with the Hoops, the hosts might fancy their chances going forward on Friday.
The recipe for Norwich’s success will lie in stopping Fulham’s red-hot talisman Aleksandar Mitrovic who has continued his spell if incredible form by netting a brace for his national team. Mitro-gol has led Serbia to a 2-0 victory over fellow World Cup contestant Nigeria in Tuesday’s friendly and he will be highly motivated to keep the amazing streak going and find the back of the net against Norwich City here. The Serbian forward should have plenty of room for that since the Canaries have shipped seven goals in last three league outings.
