Norwich City vs Derby County Prediction

Two teams from the top-tier take on each other in this tie, and predictably, the tie is going to be a closely contested one. Norwich is desperate to keep their promotion spot, while Derby wants to keep their playoff spot at any cost. Not an inch will be yielded by either team without a gargantuan effort. Goals will be very scarce in the match.

Norwich will grind out the win owing to their experience at the top, as well as their home advantage. Also, Norwich is the only team in the league that has stood unbeaten in the last ten match-days. The winning margin will most probably be one, as Derby is no pushover either. Norwich will have to sweat it out on the pitch to take the three points.
