Predicted Norwich City XI to face Bolton in the Championship

Norwich faced a terrible meltdown in the midweek as their defence seemed to absolutely fall apart on three separate occasions. Preston took advantage and by the final third of the game, the Canaries were already 3-0 down.

They have given up the pole position to Leeds United yet again and are currently a point behind the Whites. They will be looking to bounce back when they travel to the University of Bolton stadium at the weekend. With Leeds not playing until later in the week, the Canaries could use this match to recapture the lead.

Team News

Moritz Leitner and Timm Klose are close to returning and are back in training but are still a doubt for this fixture. Carlton Morris is out with a long term injury and isn’t expected back until April.

Mario Vrancic picked up a knock that will keep him out for a few weeks, which is a massive blow to Daniel Farke. Added to Louis Thompson’s expected return in April, there is a suddenly a lot of concern in the Canaries ranks.
