West Bromwich Albion head to Norwich City looking for a third consecutive win on Saturday afternoon (ko 3pm).

The Baggies have recorded back-to-back 4-1 victories at The Hawthorns over the last two weekends against Aldershot Town in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup and then Blackburn Rovers in the Sky Bet Championship.

Hosts Norwich City ended a run of three league games without a win by claiming a 2-1 triumph at Hull City last Friday night. They then followed that up with victory over Bristol Rovers in their Emirates FA Cup third-round replay on Wednesday evening.

The two teams met as recently as Boxing Day back at The Hawthorns, with Carlos Corberán's men recording a 1-0 victory thanks to Brandon Thomas-Asante's second-half effort.

The opponents

The Canaries are amongst the pack chasing for the top six spots in the Sky Bet Championship this season.

After a bright start to the campaign in August, David Wagner's charges went on a run of just two victories in 11 games from September through to November, but he has since steered the club on an upward trajectory to lift the side to 11th - two points off sixth-placed Coventry City.

They have lost two of their last five in all competitions - with one of those defeats coming at The Hawthorns on Boxing Day, in which Carlos Corberán's men earned a deserved 1-0 triumph thanks to Brandon Thomas-Asante's goal.

However, recent form suggests they'll be a tough nut to crack at Carrow Road, having gone unbeaten in their last six on home soil, accruing three wins during that time.

One player Albion will need to keep a keen eye on in Norfolk is talented young winger Jonathan Rowe, who scored a delightful effort against Hull City earlier this month, and has 11 goals and two assists in the current league campaign.

Wagner does have some injury concerns to sweat over heading into the fixture against the Baggies though, with centre half Danny Batth forced off in their FA Cup win over Rovers, whilst fellow defender Dimitris Giannoulis missed the fixture with a groin issue.

One to remember

Albion earned three huge points at Carrow Road in mid-April on their way to securing the Championship title in 2007/2008.

Robert Koren opened the scoring as early as the second minute before Zoltan Gera made it 2-0 inside the final 20. 

Ched Evans pulled one back from the penalty spot, but the Baggies hung on to take three points back to the West Midlands.
