The season’s two biggest games next on the agenda

More news, no ads


The promotion pendulum will swing many times between now and May, but a near-perfect weekend last time out saw momentum shift back towards Norwich.

After starting in fine style with a 3-1 win over Birmingham, City fans were able to relax as Leeds and Sheffield United lost, with Middlesbrough also dropping points.

Reflecting on the victory against Garry Monk’s side, I thought it was one of City’s most complete performances of the season.

In the first half, City put their visitors to the sword, scoring three goals while dominating proceedings with a swagger we have become accustom to this season.

After the break, it was a much more professional performance, closing out the game with a level of maturity beyond the age of many wearing the yellow shirt.

Instrumental to City’s victory were the midfield duo of Tom Trybull and Mario Vrancic – both of whom have had to play second fiddle for large parts of the season.

I’ve spoken a lot in recent weeks about squad depth and the performances of Trybull and Vrancic – who both got on the scoresheet – shows how much quality Daniel Farke has at his disposal.

And with Moritz Leitner and Alex Tettey still injured, the pair will continue to play a key role as City head into arguably their two biggest games of the season (three if you count the upcoming East Anglian derby).

First up tomorrow is a visit of Sheffield United, who will provide a much more difficult challenge – and I’m not just talking about the physical nature of Chris Wilder’s side.

But City have nothing to fear, despite still missing a number of key figures, having scored three times in each of their last six home games.

Given the significance of the game, I have every faith Carrow Road will be in full voice as City look to put distance between themselves and their visitors.
