Albion v Norwich City match preview

11 January 2019

Albion face Norwich City at The Hawthorns in their first Sky Bet Championship home game of 2019 (ko 3pm).

The opposition 

Norwich currently sit second in the Sky Bet Championship, two points off the top of the table having claimed 49 points from their 26 games.

They are managed by Daniel Farke, who has been in post since May 2017 and guided them to a 14th placed finish last season.

The Canaries have won just one of their last five games, drawing three and losing the other, picking up six points out of a possible 15.

Last time out 

The last time Albion faced Norwich was in an entertaining game in August as the Baggies came out 4-3 winners at Carrow Road.

Jay Rodriguez scored a brace, with Harvey Barnes and Hal Robson-Kanu also getting on the scoresheet for the Baggies.

• Albion have lost just one of their last 10 league matches, winning six of those games.

From the archive

Here are the highlights from Albion’s 2-1 win against Norwich at The Hawthorns in December 2012.

It was the Canaries that took the lead through Robert Snodgrass, but Albion fought back with Zoltan Gera making the scores level just before half-time and Romelu Lukaku sealing the points for the Baggies with under ten minutes left to play.

Head to head 

Albion come out on top in the head-to-head record.

Of the 62 matches that have been played, the Baggies have triumphed 26 times, there have been 15 draws and Norwich have won on 21 occasions.

Man in the middle 

The referee for Saturday’s match is Scott Duncan, and he’ll be assisted by Sam Lewis and Mark Russell - with Darren Bond as the fourth official.

This will be the second Albion game that Scott Duncan has refereed this season, having reffed the Baggies’ 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers at The Hawthorns in October.

Match Reports

Albion 1 Norwich City 1

12 January 2019

ALBION were denied all three points as Sky Bet Championship promotion rivals Norwich City struck late on to claim a 1-1 draw.

Fit-again frontman Dwight Gayle pounced with a predatory finish to convert an inch-perfect cross from Mason Holgate in the 12th minute and register his 14th goal of the season.

Yet Canaries substitute Jordan Rhodes levelled in the 83rd minute to ensure the spoils were shared after an entertaining encounter in front of 26,544.

The point extends Albion's impressive run to just one defeat in 12 matches in all competitions and they remain unbeaten on home soil since the end of October.

It came against a Norwich side who had not tasted away defeat in 11 league matches heading into the encounter, with Hal Robson-Kanu denied by Tim Krul in injury time.

The Baggies, who found the net for the 23rd consecutive league match at The Hawthorns, will now fly out to Dubai for a warm-weather training camp ahead of next Monday's trip to Bolton Wanderers.

Albion showed five changes from their last league outing at Blackburn Rovers on New Year's Day - Holgate, Rekeem Harper and Chris Brunt coming in along with Gayle and Ahmed Hegazi, who both returned from injury.

Matt Phillips and James Morrison missed out due to injury while Harvey Barnes was recalled by parent club Leicester, with Kyle Bartley and Tosin Adarabioyo on the bench.

And it was Gayle, missing since Boxing Day due to injury, who handed the Baggies the perfect start.

Holgate, making his league bow, delivered a low cross to the front post which was met by the onrushing Gayle, who got ahead of his marker to poke the ball home.

Jay Rodriguez drilled narrowly wide before Robson-Kanu fired off target as the hosts dominated the opening quarter.

Yet it was Sam Johnstone who came to Albion's rescue just after the half hour to make a fine save to keep out Teemu Pukki's header.

Academy graduate Harper, making his first league start for the club, tested Krul as a high-tempo and well-drilled Albion held an advantage at the break.

A furious start to the second half saw Robson-Kanu and Gareth Barry both force impressive saves from Krul, before Pukki sent an effort narrowly over at the other end.

A swift Albion move saw Gayle drill over in the 55th minute before Johnstone got down well to parry from Canaries substitute Dennis Srbeny.

Pukki fluffed his lines for the visitors when well placed in the 70th minute, Holgate sending a fine strike just over the crossbar for the Baggies.

Yet it was Rhodes who pounced late on to snatch an equaliser for the visitors at the near post, with Robson-Kanu going close to an injury-time winner as Albion pushed forward in response.

Albion: Johnstone, Holgate, Dawson, Hegazi, Gibbs, Harper, Barry, Brunt (c), Robson-Kanu (Leko 90+2), Rodriguez, Gayle (Sako 85).

Subs: Bond, Adarabioyo, Bartley, Field, Hoolahan.
