Norwich City will look to get one step closer to the promised land of the Premier League when they travel to Nottingham Forest on Wednesday night (kick-off at 7pm)

The Canaries will try to score nine straight wins but they know that Forest will be a tough nut to crack under the guidance of former city chief Chris Hughton

Adam Idah will be out with a hernia likely to require surgery, but the championship leaders have no new injury concerns

Kenny McLean (back), Todd Cantwell (Achilles) and Emi Buendia (sore muscles) had minor problems towards the end of the Hillsborough win, and although Farke said Lukas Rupp also had a minor neck discomfort, he does not expect any new injury problems

Nottingham Forest will have to do without Joe Lolley with a hamstring injury, while defender Joe Worrall will also have to stand on the sidelines due to a broken rib and could be out until after the upcoming international break

Midfielder Fouad Bachirou (thigh) is also still unavailable despite center-backs Scott McKenna and Lewis Grabban making their comeback in a 1-1 draw with Reading

The summer signing Harry Arter suffered a slight setback earlier this week when he played for the U23

“When you judge their games they either end with a goal conceded or only conceded one goal. It’s so difficult to create chances against a Chris Hughton team and even talk about scoring goals against them

“They are incredibly competitive, well structured and organized you can see Chris’s handwriting when that comes together, good players and a coach who can give them good structure and solidity against the ball are likely to see the results come will be

“This is why I think they are safe and not have to worry about a relegation battle anymore It’s more like they can already build on it”

“There is already a gap in the play-offs and indeed these types of players and the coach would have the opportunity to fight for it, but this season it may be a little too much after a difficult start

“But in any case, they will be eager to build on that next season and work on that dynamic in the next few games”

“I think we were unlucky enough not to get anything in the away game in Norwich, but they certainly started

“We watched a lot of them before playing against them and they are finding ways to get results They are a team that when after you they know they have goals in them

“They are where they are and not by chance, they are clear at the moment, not by chance and they are the best team

“They have good players and their methods are all about possession The more possession you have, the greater your threat

“You have different ways of achieving goals and with these top teams they will generally be strong. If you look at Swansea they can score but are strong at the back and don’t admit a lot like at Watford, but at Brentford and Norwich they have nine players scoring a lot of goals and there is certainly no weak area that they have at the moment

City had to make up for this in December – Jacob Sorensen gave the Canaries the lead just before the break, but the home team was held back by substitute Anthony Knockaert’s equalization. Norwich recovered and found a winner when Emi Buendia’s attempt in front of the captain was deflected by Nottingham Forest, Joe Worrall,

Nottingham Forest 0 Norwich City 1 Probably a tight, tense affair with one purpose that governs it – don’t fight the goat who gets it
