Match Previews

Preview: Norwich (A)

6 March 2018

Apologies, this video is unvailable.

Nottingham Forest take on Norwich City on Tuesday night as they look to make it three wins on the spin at Carrow Road.

The Reds have beaten QPR and Birmingham in successive games to extend their unbeaten run to four and will look to defeat Daniel Farke's side to add to the growing confidence at The City Ground.

Aitor Karanka's side have been building a togetherness and have shown a steely desire to defend and an aggression in attack to build this run of form.

Norwich meanwhile have failed to reach the heights of last year which saw them come close to a play-off place, but an unbeaten February is sure to have boosted The Canaries' confidence ahead of the match.

See below for Aitor Karanka's pre-match views.

Team news

Eric Lichaj is available for selection again having completed his three-match suspension. David Vaughan remains out while Jack Hobbs has stepped up his recovery after featuring for the Under 23s last night.

Aitor Karanka will have to decide whether to start with Ben Brereton or Daryl Murphy up front, with the Irishman replacing the 18-year-old at half-time on Saturday.

From the opposition

Daniel Farke says his Norwich City side will show respect to Nottingham Forest but believes his team has what it takes to get a much-needed victory at Carrow Road.

Speaking to Norwich's official website, Farke said: "We have to be really respectful for this game but we know we are in a good shape. We want to go further on.

"We are flexible right now and we are able to switch formations because the lads are comfortable.

"We have many options and the opponent doesn't know if we will come with a three-man or four-man formation.

"We are unbeaten since January and have put in some good performances. Hopefully we can reward ourselves with a win."

One to watch - James Maddison

With nine goals and six assists to his name in the league this season, it has been a good breakthrough season for James Maddison at Norwich. 

The 21-year-old has been a key man for Daniel Farke's side this season and will be at the centre of things for The Canaries on Tuesday night.

He has scored key goals, including winning strikes against Millwall, Bristol City and Brentford since the start of 2018.

Match Reports

Norwich 0-0 Forest

6 March 2018

Nottingham Forest earned a hard-fought point with a goalless draw against Norwich City at Carrow Road this evening.

The Reds had some good early chances but a determined and disciplined display saw them come away with a point to extend their unbeaten run to five games.

Aitor Karanka made one change to the side which defeated Birmingham City on Saturday, with Kieran Dowell coming in for Lee Tomlin and Liam Bridcutt stepping onto the substitutes' bench.

It was a scrappy opening few minutes to the game, with Ben Brereton almost capitalising on a weak back-header from Grant Hanley and Josh Murphy denied by a Tendayi Darikwa block as he looked to convert a loose ball in the Forest box.

A guilt-edged chance arrived on 12 minutes for The Reds and Brereton should have found the net. A counter attack was led superbly by Dowell as he skipped past one man then played Brereton in on the right of the penalty area, but the teenager dragged his effort wide of Angus Gunn's goal.

The home side had a good opportunity of their own on 18 which forced Costel Pantilimon into a smart save. A corner was delivered by James Maddison into the Forest area and Josh Murphy rose highest in the middle, powering a header towards the top corner which the Romanian stopper was equal to.

On 23 minutes Brereton had another good chance, latching onto Dowell's pass again but chipping an effort over the onrushing Gunn and also over his unguarded net, before Josh Murphy again tested Pantilimon at the other end, with the keeper tipping his effort from a tight angle around the post.

Norwich finished the first half the stronger side and the Forest stopper denied Murphy again on 42 as his long-range shot dipped and swerved, with Pantilimon doing well to get contact on the ball to push it away from danger.

The home side looked to get in behind the Forest back line at the start of the second half and it almost paid dividends on 52 as Onel Hernandez raced down the right and smartly cut it back for the arriving Maddison who flashed an effort over the bar from 15 yards.

Josh Murphy and Maddison both had efforts from outside of the box drift wide of the post as the home side looked more likely to break the deadlock, before Dowell had a good opportunity to get a shot at goal on 67 but fired over the bar from the edge of the box.

Matty Cash had a golden opportunity on 72 as he met Dowell's delivery into the box, but he couldn't keep his header down and Brereton forced Gunn into a smart low save on 86 as he raced into the area.

As the clock wore down, it was Forest who looked more threatening, breaking forward on several occasions but unable to make it count as ultimately both sides had to settle for a share of the spoils.
