Norwich City vs Stoke City
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich)
An improved since last season Norwich City side has a tough job this Saturday against Stoke City. Both sides are ambitious but the Potters are finding it tough since their relegation from the Premier League.
Norwich are playing well this season. Farke’s work is finally getting its fruits and all their fans are hoping that this may be their season. The Canaries are into the playoff zone and will need to keep up their performances to keep distance of their fierce competition.
Midweek the team didn’t win but playing against Derby County away is always tough. The Canaries could have won the game but just failed to keep their goal advantage. Klose was the man who opened the score for the visitors but Bryson equalized for Derby near the end of the game to share the points.
Stoke are nowhere near where their fans want them to be. The teams sits on 16th place with a 4 points deficit from the top 6. The Potters want promotion without doubt but like many other teams relegated from the Premier League are having difficulties returning there.
Last game they broke the winless streak at the expense of Bolton Wanderers. Nice clean 2-0 home victory gave back some of the lost confidence. Martins Indi opened the score early while Ince finished Bolton with a second half in the 74th minute.
