Norwich team news

Dean Smith will have to do without Adam Idah (knee), Andrew Omobamidele (back) and Ozan Kabak (hamstring) for the remainder of the campaign.

Brandon Williams is once again available for selection after sitting out the tight encounter against his parent club last weekend, Joshua Sargent is a doubt having only recently been fit enough to remove a protective boot.


Newcastle team news

While Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson crawl along their lengthy path back to fitness, Isaac Hayden and Jamal Lewis continue to recover from surgeries on knee and groin issues respectively.

Ryan Fraser may well be kept on the sidelines for another match as Newcastle's medical department try to identify the specific location of his hamstring injury after conflicting opinions from the initial scan.


Norwich vs Newcastle prediction

Taking the season as a whole, it would be a mighty stretch to say that Newcastle have been good - even taking into consideration Eddie Howe's turnaround since the controversially-funded club splurged in January.

However, they remain a lot better than Norwich, who have endured one of the bleaker campaigns in recent years, typified by a tally of just 12 league goals in front of their fans all season long (Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has scored 11 at Anfield in the Premier League so far).

Prediction: Norwich 0-2 Newcastle
