Norwich City leaves for the second time within a week on Tuesday evening (7 p.m.) to St Andrew’s – this time against landlords in Birmingham City

The Canaries are hoping for a similar result after beating Coventry last Wednesday thanks to goals from Teemu Pukki and Emi Buendia, if Norwich can win they will have 10 points ahead of Brentford, Swansea and Watford on Wednesday night

Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke is likely to believe in the side who beat Rotherham 1-0 on Saturday, which means Christoph Zimmermann is once again at the center of City’s defense and Ben Gibson is out with a back problem who becomes the Burnley borrower probably fighting again for the trip to Wycombe on Sunday

“We need the same level of performance (as opposed to Coventry), that’s definitely for sure, but also different because Birmingham is really different in their approach and style of play compared to Coventry”

“Birmingham is a big club with an incredibly experienced coach at this level, lots of experienced players. At the moment they are also fighting a bit against relegation

“But I am sure that with this quality of players and this experienced coach – I really appreciate Aitor Karanka – that they will end up in midfield I’m pretty sure about it””

“Norwich is great at the moment but we are also confident after we have won a game I watch a football game as 11 players against 11 players, if you want more you can win the game. Forget a club’s reputation, you just have to win your individual battles, do what we do best, and hope we get the three points ”
