        Norwich vs. Blackburn Prediction, Tips & Stats

        Carrow Road plays host to an interesting fixture in the EFL Championship this weekend as Norwich City face Blackburn Rovers.

        Norwich City currently sit 17th in the EFL Championship with five wins, two draws and seven losses from fourteen games so far this season.

        The Canaries look well on course to deliver yet another underwhelming campaign as they find themselves looking well short of the requires standard to mount a promotion push despite boasting an impressive squad quality-wise.

        They're coming into this game amidst an awful run of form, winless in their last five games having lost four of them.

        Their most recent outing saw them fall to a 3-1 defeat away at Sunderland in what was a damning indictment of their current predicament.

        Many would argue that they saw this coming for Norwich after they appointed a manager in David Wagner with a poor recent record at club level, with the board seemingly choosing to recycle old and uninspiring names rather than making an innovative left field appointment.

        Their form at home has been slightly better as they come into this one having won two and lost three of their last five at home, but it's still nothing to be convinced by.

        Wagner's job is likely very much on the line here and another defeat in this one could spell the end for the German - or at least push him further to the edge of the cliff.

        Blackburn Rovers currently sit 12th in the Championship with six wins, one draw and seven losses from fourteen games so far this season.

        Like Norwich, Blackburn have had a somewhat underwhelming campaign so far after coming into the season harbouring hopes of another promotion push after only missing out on the play-offs on goal difference last season, and while they've displayed some promising signs they're clearly short of the requisite level for a top six finish.

        They're entering this game amidst a decent run of form in the league having won three and lost two of their last five games, the most recent of which was a frustrating 0-1 loss at home to Swansea in which Rovers weren't really at the races.

        Jon Dahl Tomasson's side then went to Chelsea in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night and fell to a 2-0 defeat, a not unexpected result in a game that they gave a good account of themselves.

        Blackburn certainly aren't in bad shape heading into this one and given they've won both of their last two games on the road they'll fancy themselves to get a result here.

        For our Norwich vs. Blackburn prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.

        Norwich Team News

        Norwich still have a fairly lengthy injury list with Ashley Barnes, Angus Gunn, Grant Hanley, Josh Sargent and Jacob Sørensen all out injured.

        Changes are expected for the Canaries following a 3-1 defeat last time out with Marcelino Núñez and Jack Stacey in contention for a return to the starting lineup.

        Blackburn Team News

        Rovers are coming into this game without the suspended Hayden Carter so James Hill will likely partner Scott Wharton at the heart of the defence.

        With that, Joe Rankin-Costello may move to right back with Adam Wharton partnering Sondre Tronstad at the base of the midfield.

        Jon Dahl Tomasson could be tempted to reintroduce Harry Leonard to the fold up top but if not Tyrhys Dolan will continue in the false nine role with Sammie Szmodics behind him and Callum Brittain and Arnór Sigurðsson on the wings.

        Aynsley Pears, Dominic Hyam, Ryan Hedges and Sam Gallagher are all out injured.
