Offensively, Norwich is one of the best two teams in the entire league. Goals come in plenty for them whenever they line-up against teams from the Championship, and especially at home. Keeping in track with their usual strategies, Norwich will use their home advantage to their favor and try and put Nottingham under pressure from the first minute itself.

Norwich has had a perfect home record in their last five tries in front of the home crowd. Five wins from five games. Norwich will get on the scoresheet early and will try to maintain their lead till the end.
